Default COVERED POOL ON ISLAND PRINCESS?

Hi:

This is for anyone who has been on the Island Princess. We have an Alaskan cruise booked for next summer on the Island Princess and I was just wondering if they have a covered pool so you can go swimming? Thanks.
Happy Cruising.....Anita

Anita - just off the Island Princess - and yes, the Lotus Pool has the retractable roof over it. This pool has steps going down into the pool, but the depth of the pool is about 6 feet all around except for the steps. This pool also doubles as the swim against the current pool - this is not always on, but if it is, just be careful because some people were caugh unaware when entering the pool. The current can be turned off in the pool itself - there is a small button just below the water surface to the right of the current machine. I loved this area - you look up and you are right below the jet engines!

Hi Buddy,
There are some good pictures of Island Princess in the photo gallery:

I believe there is one in there that shows the pool you are asking about.

Jo - I have heard two different stories - one is that they are just for decoration; the other is that it is air intake for something or another. I don't know! But they are interesting!
