I used to think the pools were empty on embarkation day in some ports because the water may be too shallow and they needed to lighten the ship up. But then I went out of the same port on a different cruise line and the pools were filled, so that shot my first theory out of the air. I don't really know why some do this and some don't.

As for the pools being empty at night....that is so they can clean the walls and pumps overnight and have them ready for use in the morning.
