I've seen the date December 22 2014 for the upgrade of Explorer of the Seas. I'm not sure that is correct.

When I have cruised Vision it has also been very quiet in the solarium but that can have something to do with the fact that I have only cruised her up here north with very few kids onboard.

The solaruim pool is adult's only but I don't think the solarium area itself is that, as it was the only place where they served snacks like pizza slices, hamburgers, hot dogs and sandwiches.
