Default Retractable Pool Roof on Zuiderdam?

Does anyone know if there is a retractable roof over one of the pools on the Zuiderdam? It seems like such a plus in case of rain.

Yes they do have one. It would be terrible to get wet from the rain while you are swimming in a pool.............................................. .

Maybe you haven't grown up by the water, but as soon as it rains you get OUT of the water. There really isn't a need to take any risks.

Yes - on the Lido deck, over the main pool there is a really effective sliding cover - which lets in a lot of light sun when closed.

Last summer, they always left the midships pool roof almost all the way closed, even when it was a beautiful sunny day. Personally, I think it makes the area smell funny, more of chlorine, and traps the noise in, since this seemed to have been the pool most of the children favored. When we were on Veendam and Maasdam years ago, the slider was more pushed back to the sides of the mechanism.

What do y'all think about the sliding roof's best position?

The BEST position is of course open fully when the sun is shining and the weather is good. I, too, have noticed that the roof is most often partially or mostly closed even in the best of weather.

It gets so hot and humid inside the Lido pool area, without a breath of air, that it becomes like a greenhouse! I thought the purpose of the roof was to keep out inclement weather, not beautiful breezes on a fair day!

Hi,

I found the roof was partially closed only once during our 7 day cruise and that was late at night when it was raining. By morning it was fully open again.

I did notice it was like a greenhouse even for that short time. I wouldn't like to see it closed at all..........but it probably comes in handy when you run into a storm!

It is a great ship.

Dani
