I think they have just solidified their position for people who want non-children oriented venues ... adult only pools are a must for people cruising without children if they want any sense of relaxation. They are off my list entirely now for potential future cruises.


I saw that info a couple of days ago and gave it a shoulder shrug. I'm not a swimmer, not interested in pools (especially after the P in the ool thread we had a while back!!!)

In addition, Carnival is mostly geared towards families so not a surprise.

I do not go into cruise ship pools, as long as they keep the Serenity deck with chairs and a bar I'm good.

No impact at all for myself. Positive change for the cruises with kids and grands.

I do understand why adults who enjoy the pool wouldn't be happy. I think Carnival is shooting itself in the foot on this one, but it won't bother me.

I'll be on Splendor in October and there shouldn't be too many children running freely without any parental supervision.

I really don't use a pool on the ship.

Yeah, Carnival is know for shooting themselves in the foot quite a bit lately.

Adult Pools? Lol! Did they ever really have any?

I am allergic to Bromine so I can't go in ship pools. Most of them unless they are sea water pools, use Bromine.

I don't go into the pools so it won't impact me at all, but friends of ours sure enjoyed being in the adult only pool area and will be disappointed.

I love it when sweet adorable little youngsters leap and play in the pools and tubs

It's refreshing to see them having fun. The R rated comedy show should go to so the kids can see a late show.Happy

Wild little youngsters should have all the benefits of others
