Default Lido Deck and Pools - Noordam

Have been looking at lots of pics of the Lido deck from different galleries and in all of them it appears to be beautiful sunny days in the caribbean and yet not one pic showing the glass dome open. Do they ever open it? There is an open pool on the rear of this deck but I understand it can be quite windy. Would hope they open the dome at least part of the time. One of the reasons we go to the caribbean in colder weather in US is to get the sun.

Yes, the dome is often open. Probably the pictures you have seen are those taken for promotional material.

The aft pool deck may be windy at times, but believe me when it's HOT out there you will appreciate a breeze. Some days are so hot that you can "fry" just lying on a lounge in the sun.

We much prefer the aft pool as the section under the dome, open or not, can be very humid.

When we did the Panama in 06 , they opened the roof on the Volendam after we left San Diego. During the canal portion they closed the roof. If the weather looked iffy they would also close the roof.
