Default Pool Hours??

does anyone know what kind of pool hours they have on the Pride for a 7 day cruise??
On the Paradise last year it seemed like the pool was always closed... and I never saw the second pool/hot tub open.

Also, I just saw a pool cover (dome window) in webshots... when would they close the cover, if it's raining or extremly cold?

Thank you, on one hand it surprises me they are open until 11:45 pm at times... and on the other hand, I can't believe they don't open until 1pm....

Do you know... are they open at all while in port??

They are definitely open on port days as well. Lots of people never get off the ship and just enjoy quiet pool time.

The pool times on Carnival were one thing we didn't like. They never seemed to stay open past 6 or 7 pm. Maybe that has changed. We liked the pools on Princess which were always open and full with water.

ferrangi,
Sorry, not sure how deep the pools are.

Now that is an excellent question. I don't remember them being very deep at all. I'm guessing around 6 feet at the deep end

Good guess because at 5 feet it is still over your head

What Carnival ship Capers are these hours from? I've been on Carnival 9 times. The pools have always been open when I got my lazy butt outta bed and I don't sleep until 1pm. To have the pools closed until 1pm would cause a mutiny.

I've also never seen a Carnival pool open until 11:45pm. I always take early dining and when we are done eating the pools have always been closed.

I just checked my Liberty capers from Last year. The forward and mid pools were open 8am - 8pm and the aft pool was open 8am - 10pm

Are those the times because it's the first day and most people aren't onboard until about 12 - 1pm?
