Did you say something?
We saw one girl who was around ten, come into the pool. When she was told it was for adults she apologized and left. Otherwise there was no problem...

There was a group of about 6 kids with their parents in the pool.
An employee mentioned it to parents. They just ignored what he said
and continued using the pool anyway.
These same kids would run around the ship at night screaming and carrying on late at night .

Don't start me on this one.

I like to go to the adult area because I don't want the noise and reminder of children. And that's why alot of parents do also. But......they don't respect or care about others. Their "perfect" children are so tame and obedient that it's ok for "them" to be there, but not other unruley children. SORRY MOMMY and DADDY, you are so wrong!

Don't you just wonder what they were thinking not building a children's pool.
Especially a ship of that size.

I was brought up in a family of 9 brothers and sisters. Therefore, being brought up in such a large family (no twins) and even if we could have afforded a cruise( NOT), there would be no way that mom and dad would allow us kids to be in an designated adult area. There are rules that must be obeyed and believe me, we did obey. Were they strick, no, but they would not allow us to disobey, be rude to elders or speak improperly to others. It just wasn't going to happen and if it did, you can bet your "reddened butt" that it would not happen again!!!!!

Being sent to your room now is not punishment but almost a reward to get away from your own family.

The main pools can be used by all ages.
The Solarium is the only one restricted to adults only...

Just did the virtual tour on Voyager class. It does show adventure ocean on deck 12. Looks like a small children's pool. Anyone have any info ?

Not on Mariner. Mariner was the 5th ship of the Voyager class. The first ones had that but Mariner and Navigator do not.
