Default POOLS ON THE GRAND

My husband and I are sailing on the Grand in September and are wondering if anyone who has sailed recently knows how long the pools stay open? I recall reading somewhere might have been on this message board that they stay open all knight. Is this true or not?

I was on the Grand 6/3/01...never saw any signs with hours posted. I think the pools are open all night...swim at your own risk.

Pools and hot tubs are open 24/7 except when closed for routine maintenance.

Thank you both for responding. It'll be nice to be able to take a dip any time. When we cruised on the RCCL the pools closed in the evening.

Maria,

It'll be nice to be able to take a dip any time.

That's true, to a point. When at sea during the daytime, the ship usually adjusts course and speed to a level that ensures that passengers can use the pools. At night, however, the ship usually adjusts speed to make time so that she arrives in the next port at the schedued hour. The motion from the sea, although slight, can induce substantial waves in the pools that could make ti exceedingly dangerous to swim during the nighttime hour.

Norm.
