Emerald pool?

Recommended Posts

I didn't think the Emerald/Ruby/Crown....all sister ships...had an indoor pool.

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! :o:o

 

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". ;p

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?

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

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.

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.
