I enjoy a nice pool first, but if cruising and at a beach, then its the ocean....Just got to have a nice beach to go with it....Love the cruises that stop at private islands/beaches, highlight of the cruise.

For me, the beach is for bathing and the pool for swimming. I swim at least 300 yards every day and can do it about nine months a year in my unheated pool. Postage stamp size pools on the ship are just for looking at.

If you swim in Lake tahoe you are guaranteed to see your feet

Without question-the ocean! Salt is better for the skin than chlorine-and better for the swim suit too. And the ocean is much cleaner than a pool- and more buoyant.
