The Emerald as well as the sister ships Ruby and Crown do not have a covered pool. Only the original Grand class ships have the one covered pool.

Sorry... I apologize. I've been on the Emerald and could have sworn one of the pools had a cover. I just looked at the deck plans, and sure enough, none of them are covered!

Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

It's a tad unfortunate as I love to sit and read on the deck just above the covered pool on the Grand class ships. We have 28 days on Emerald coming up in October so I guess I'll just have to "suffer".

I was on the Grand and know it had a retractable roof, I was not sure which other ship had it.

What about the Sapphire's pool?

Which ships are in the Grand class?

Wikipedia does. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Cruises

And if you look here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand-class_cruise_ship it breaks the Grand Class down into it's subclasses.

Thrak, you don't have to suffer. Just bring a winter coat and you will be fine.

Thanks for the site it helps to decide to pack swim wear or not..

I am going on the Emerald July/August 2017 to Alaska with no indoor pool might not go swimming. I am also going on the Sapphire July 2018 to Norwegian Fjords, the ship shows an indoor pool, might go swimming.

Regal Princess 2014
Majestic Princess 2016

Caribbean Class
Caribbean Princess 2004

Crown Class
Crown Princess 2006
Emerald Princess 2007
Ruby Princess 2008

Gem Class
Diamond Princess 2004
Sapphire Princess 2004

Coral Class
Coral Princess 2002
Island Princess 2003

Grand Class
Grand Princess 1998

Star Princess 2002

Sun Class
Sun Princess 1995
Dawn Princess 1997
Sea Princess 1998

R Class

This breakdown can now be endlessly disputed. (Obviously not all ships listed are still part of the fleet.)

I went to Alaska from Vancouver around the 24th of September a few years ago and the weather was so warm the first couple of days that we went in the outdoor pool and then sat in the hot tub. Take your suit.

We were on the Ruby last August on a r/t from Seattle. It was warm and there were pax using the pool. When we visited Glacier Bay, many were on the top deck taking pictures in tshirts and shorts it was so warm. It is hard to out guess mother nature.
