Reserved seats around pool for Suite guests?

Recommended Posts

I am sailing soon on Allure. First time on this large of a ship. I know she has a Suite Sun Deck, but is there also a reserved section by the pool for gold card guests? I know smaller ships offer that, but they don’t have a Suite Sun deck. 

 

TIA

We were on Allure in April.  I believe there were reserved seats by the pool, but there was seldom anyone sitting in them.

I don't remember any reserved seats except for the suite sun deck on Allure.  Freedom class has reserved seats for suite guests but I don't remember any on  Oasis class, but I could be wrong (it's happened before, LOL)

Just a random thought.

 

I'm thinking about all the posts in all the threads complaining about people reserving seats around the pool. On a typical afternoon, less then half of the loungers around the pool are actually used. The rest have random items placed on them to "reserve" them. Everyone complains about that situation. How is this any better?

The cruise line reserved them for their special guests. Not cousin Timmy and 10 of his friends.

Their ship, their rules....

Why would suite guests on Allure get reserved seating at the pools when they have the entire suite deck to themselves?

I understand that there is no pool on that level but, you can walk down the steps and take a dip in the solarium pool.

That being said, I have been on Allure twice and have never seen any reserved section at the pools for suites.

No reserved chairs for suite guests by the pool on allure.  There is a reserved deck for suite guests.  Also there is no gold card for suite guests on Oasis class.  It is either plum for sky and dark blue for star.

I am just of Indy, yes there were ropes off sections for suite guests only by the main pool area.

For us the suite deck is just a waste of space. And I am only speaking for myself.  (On Allure that is, where we cruise the most on).

 

It is hot, it has a bar (you can pay or use drink package you purchased, only thing free is water), but I do not drink during the day, except pop or water.  Has some munchies for free.

 

There is one misting station.

 

The area provides towels to take as needed. Restrooms, and a couple cabanas.

 

If I want to rest on deck, I would just go out on the balcony of our cabin, listen to the waves.

 

If I want to swim, I put my stuff (towels and shoes)  on one out of the way chair and swim.

I am past the point of sun worshiping, I just like to sit at the pools edge and people watch.

 

Others may enjoy it, but vary rarely have we seen it crowded.

 

Safe travels.

Agree. Have witnessed 8-10 seats reserved for Family that isn't there, in case they drop by. And they also have another set of 8-10 on other side pool for when the Sun moves, also empty. Same has been when started Cruising more then 30yrs ago...

And since summer has started today - this practice  is also  common at most land resorts.

Ok! Forgive me ..... I have never sailed on an Oasis class ship... so I was referring to SUITE class card holders when I spoke about Gold Card sections. Was unaware that on Oasis they are Purple & Blue. Now I  know!

And that is what I will do... because I want to be by the pool & watch all the goings on that happen there. 😃 That was exactly what I needed to know. Thanks!

Forgive you? For what - a perfectly legitimate and completely understandable question.

I have sailed Oasis, Harmony, and Allure. There were no reserved seats by the pools for any class of suite. The only reserved spot is the private sundeck that has been mentioned.

 

Enjoy your cruise!

Royal does a great job at preventing chair hogs on the Harmony. The lonely job of a lifeguard.
