Default Can kids in diapers go in kids pools?

I know that a child in a diaper can't go in the regular pools on a ship, but can they go in the kids pool? Specifically on RCI?

No, the cruise lines don't want kids in diapers in the kiddie pools either. It's mostly because of the risk of a diaper accident -- and having to clear out a whole pool to clean it -- that lines prohibit it. Some parents bring small blow up pools that they can dump a little bit of water in to keep their little ones cool.

Disney's kiddie pool has a separate filtration system in it's "ears" so that kids in diapers can go in it.

Smooth sailing,

On our last RCI cruise there was a sign posted at the pool....."no swim diapers." Most cruiseship pools have a shallow edge around them to prevent water from sloshing onto the deck we had a great time just walking my 15 mo old around the edge, without getting her diaper wet. No one seemed to mind, except for my daughter. She wanted to get in!
