During our last cruise, which went to some colder climates, I asked the captian (during a Q&A time) if there was any way to make the pools warmer, and he said no...that they simply stay at 74 degrees. He didn't provide any explanation why he couldn't warm them up more. We also had a stat sheet for our cruise as to how much food was consumed, how much fuel was used, how much fresh water was made, etc., etc. The de-salinazation plant is already making fresh water for the ships water supply...why not just make more for the pools?
Generally speaking, we cruise the Mexican Riviera during non summer months, where as most summer time cruises or caribbean cruises are already very warm. It just seems like they could easly warm the pools up to a nicer temperature and/or use fresh water, but they won't do it.
