Default Too Many Ugly People In The Hot Tubs

I have never been in a hot tub on a ship and probably never will. Sometimes what I see in the hot tubs really scares me. I mean, eight or ten people of all sizes, shapes and ages, sometimes even including very young children, in one hot tub. Yuck, and probably unsanitary. Sitting in a hot tub on a cruise ship might be a wonderful experience, but I guess that is is one that I will never know.

That's why I'm so looking forward to my next cruise - Zuiderdam - private hottub on my verandah - and one in the master bathroom - ahhhh...
I've been on 15 cruises and never gotten in one of the public hottubs or pools unless I've personally seen them just finish cleaning it and I'm the first one in (and usually the first one out, when someone else gets in). Just wish they'd start using that dye that turns blue or red when someone pees in the public pool or hottub. (EEewwwww)

I hear both of you on that one. I see so many people crammed into the hot tubs, and a lot of them with drinks in hand. I wonder how many drinks get spilled in there as well? Just stir and add an umbrella.

It wouldn't be the drink being spilled that would worry me.

I stay out of them due to the splashing kids. I don't care to have hot, salty, chlorinated water splashed into my contact lenses. That burns so bad and ruins the contacts. But I agree with your point. I have walked by the hottubs several times when they were empty and saw the suntan lotion just floating on top of the water like a oil slick. Gross!

I've got to agree. There wouldn't be a problem if kids weren't allowed in the hot tubs. And, BTW, why do they call them hot tubs? They've always been luke warm when I've been in them.

Regards,
Thomas

I agree with you, Thomas....my sister & I took my mom on a cruise and I really had to convince her to get into the COLD tub with her drink so I can take a picture! But she was out immediately afterwards!

I was once told by a ship's doc (who should know) to stay away from the hot tubs.

I do.

Yup, if I see a pool or hot tub crowded with kidz, I stay away. Can't stand noise or splashing.

I absolutely love my time in the hot tub! I always use the ones in the solarium area which doesn't allow "splashing kids" I especailly enjoy it late at night after dinner when it's quiet and peaceful. It is so relaxing. And yes they do get crowed at times,this is usually when I choose to lay out and catch some rays. But certain times of the day they are almost empty (early morning/til around 11). If you guys want to not use them that's fine with me, it just means there will less people using them and more room for me
