Default SWIMMING POOLS ON THE DAWN.

There seems to be some confushion about the pools on the Dawn. When we were on the Dawn over the Holidays they were definetly chlorinated!!!! Also, they did close the pool only once because of rough sea's, but other than that, they are open.

Princess is just about the only major line that uses fresh water in the pools and does not drain and refill then daily.

As I said above, Princess is the only line using fresh water in it's pools. That would mean, Norwegian uses salt water.

The Dawns pools are fresh water, not salt water, and they are heated.

The water in the pool on the Dawn Pricess may be fresh water but I can assure you on the NCL Dawn the main pool is salt water and heated. This is first hand knowledgeI having been on the NCL Dawn twice and in the pool many times.

What was the question anyway?

Sorry guys but I was on the Norwegian Dawn over Christmas and the pools are definately FRESH water.

Now, it is possible that in the winter while sailing in and out of New York they maintain fresh water in the pools because they (for obvious reasons) can't use ice cold ocean water. Salt water must be dumped and refilled every day or it will turn brackish.

It is possible that once the weather warms up that they may change over to daily filling/empting of salt water in the pools - but on the December 21, 2003 cruise they were using heated, clorinated fresh water.

Brian,
That definetly makes perfect sence. Because you can't mistake salt water for fresh. So the people that swore it was salt when they were on were propably correct and for the poeple who sailed in the colder months, we were also correct.
Good call!!!!!!!!!!!

Another way to find out besides drinking it ...you can't sink in salt water. If you can't get to the bottom very easy, it will be salt water.

I work on the NCL DAWN-
All the outdoor pools are all SALT WATER, and are 76 Degrees F.
The KIDS POOL - T REX POOL Is HEAVILY CHLORINATED, approx. 76 degrees also everyday
THE SPA POOL- INDOOR AND HEATED- is chlorinated

THe outdoor pools are all drained nightly, for sanitary reasons of course.

WEll thank you so much! its really not as bad as alot of people would perceive it to be. Not everyone can do it- you have to be a pretty energetic and a patient person to work with the kids, but honestly, its the best job on the ship i think!

How come your not at sea? Is it your 2 month off period? Or how many months do you work on and get off? A few of the crew members were telling us their schedule. Great life for young people!!! If I were young again, I would definetly consisder that!!!

Is this one of the Southern Caribbean ones (as opposed to the Bahamian ones), Shoreguy? If so, give us a report when you get back, huh? I'm interested in trying that one out in the future.

I will be doing the southern having already done the FL in July and the eastern last Feb. Lots of positive feedback on the earlier 10 and 11 day southern cruises on cruise critic. Got an email tonight from a friend on the Dawn now. 24 hours out of NY as cold as it is here already 65 onboard. Hot tubs are full

WEll actually

I dont' work full contracts on any ship., which would be 4.5 months as a youth coordianator, but.... i on the other hand,
prefer.. to take contracts weeks at at time.
I was on the dawn for a total of 6 weeks.. I just got back in January, and next week i'm heading to the Dream for 6 weeks, and then to the Crown for 4 weeks.
I get bored of staying in one place for too long, so i prefer the shorter contracts, or also known as "seasonal work"
On the Dawn, during the busy peaks, i was working anywhere from 50-60 hours.. 7 days a week with no break. Its a long day, and far far from home ..especially when you aren't feeling so great. I really give credit to those who work full time contracts.. months at a time. But i mean.. i could complain about the job for 10 hours, but i could brag about how great it is for 50.. so.. everything has its pros and cons.

And glad i could help out with the pool matters lol
