Default pools in alaska

Just a real silly question. How heated are the heated pools in Alaska? Are we talking warm (90) or just above freezing? Will we be avoiding them completely and sticking to the hot tubs like everyone else? They must get pretty crowded! Also, would it be acceptable to wear the bathrobe from the room to the pool? I think we would be cool wearing only bathing suits and cover ups when we are wet in Alaska. Are the pools open 24 hours? A midnight swim in a truly heated pool sounds heavenly, especially amongst the glaciers. Any input would be welcomed.

If on the Sun or Dawn- the hot tubs are the most used. Very very few use the pool- it's always kind of funny to see swimmers and then deck viewers walking by with jackets on. At night it is even more cold outside- even if the pool was heated.

Thanks for the response. I'll take my bathing suit and do a lot of praying for a warm day or just do a quick dip in the hot tub.

We were on the Sun Princess last year and Karen is right the hot tubs got used more than the pools, mostly by the adults (never crowded). One or two kids in the pool at any one time...mostly not used at all even though the main one is heated. Rear pool was so hot you couldn't stay in too long and hot tubs were of varying temps. Lovely views in Glacier Bay while in the hot tubs :-)
Even on our last day before Vancouver when it was warm enough to sunbake I didn't see too many adults with swimmers on and using the pools!!
