Default Poll- Your FAVORITE Onboard Places?

We all have certain lounges, or pools on certain ships that we seem to migrate toward. After a few hours onboard I can generally tell you where, besides the casino<G>, you'll most likely be able to find me.
What SPECIFICALLY are your favorite spots? Name the specific ship, and bar/lounge, atrium, etc.


Think at the moment the aft outside deck (outside the buffet area) on Celebrity's Millie class ships tops my list... though from pics the aft pool area on Legend looks pretty darn good. It could soon be my new favorite.

Well, I must admit I was drawn late at night (actually I guess it was early morning) to the Skywalker Lounge on the Golden P. Loved the energy.

During the day, any sunny spot with a great view of Mother, Mother ocean. The Promenade deck on the Millennium class vessels is a wonderful place to relax and reflect. There is actually empty space between the cushy loungers, and you are much closer to the waves than pool deck.

Kuki -

Interior - would have to be either Champagne Bar on any Vision or Radiance class vessel, grand promenade on Eagle Class vessels. Private concierge lounge on Radiance class vessels is right up there too.

Exterior - my own verandah or my favorite people watching lounge chair in the shade on the pool deck.

Hard question to stick to just one answer!

Have to agree with Kuki, the aft deck on any of the MIlle class ships or for that matter Mercury or Galaxy too. Love sitting out there.

I loved the rear pool bar area on the Carnival Destiny. Padded pool chairs, quieter pool, free pizza and a bar all in one little area.

Without question, the Spa. Love the gym and especially the steam and sauna rooms. When not there you will usually find us on deck reading and soaking up the sun and people watching. Whenever on a CCL Fantasy class ship or any other ship that has a open deck behind the Lido buffet you will find us there for both breakfast and lunch instead of inside.

I also like the rear deck on the Fantasy class ships, but I always migrate to the Viking Crown Lounge on RCI's ships at sail away and cocktails before dinner.

Regards,
Thomas

On the three ships I've sailed...

Carnival Jubilee - the corner booth in the Speakeasy Lounge - tucked away and private.

Carnival Fantasy - the aft outdoor deck behind the Lido deck, as Jim and Thomas say.

Celebrity Millennium - we loved the aft bar (The Ocean Bar) as well. Happy hour can't be beat! Also, the martini bar, and the Cova Cafe.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Hubby and I love the Solarium on the Explorer. After a dip in the pool and time in the hot tub, we relax on lounge chairs--he naps and I read between dozes. I love seeing the ocean going by on sea days. The restrooms are nearby and the waiter is circulating in case we decide to have a drink. It's wonderful not having to do anything except lounge around and wonder what's on the dinner menu. We go there mid to late afternoon when there is a better chance of getting a lounge chair.

Any ship, anywhere, as long as I have a deck chair in the sun, near the pool, washrooms, and outdoor bar and grill - heaven!
