Cortney, no offense taken. In fact, I agree!
Happy cruising!

On the Conquest and Destiny class the "Children's Pool" is on Sun Deck - just outside (Conquest) or above (Destiny) Camp Carnival

As Suzy Cruise stated, I have no problem with well-behaved children that respect their elders and don't poop in the pool. It is the other ones that I worry about.

Gone are the days of "it taking a village to raise a child." If one tries to gently correct a child's bad behavior these days, expect evil looks and bad words directed your way. Anyway, I digress..

I'm hoping I get some peaceful adult pool time on my cruise. If not, there is always Costa Maya.

I agree with all of you. I have not experienced a case of a kid pooping in the pool or hottub however I to have had kids bugging me on my vacations. However I must admite it was really funny to see at the end of my mexican cruise on the pride the teenagers making out, and crying after spending a week together. However I also beleve that we must take into consideration the cruise company that we are on and rememeber that it is a company that to a certain degree targets families. If we don't want to deal with kids at all we should go on seaborn cruises. And to all of the parents out there take care of your kids these are not floating safe zones you still need to take care of your kids

About the poop. You don't get to see it. It is conveniently smashed in the kids disposable diaper. But the water filters through it which is where the e-coli problem arises.

I love kids but have had the same problem. On a past cruise, I went all the way to the front desk because I could not get anyone to say anything to the wild kids diving into 2 feet of water.
Was so irritated. And I have my granddaughter now 16 with me.
Well behaved kids are fine, but the wild ones are another matter.
I do say something to the kids. If there parents don't like that then they need to dicipline them themselves. I don't really care to see some kids head splattered all over a pool they were diving into. Sorry to say, a lot of schools, like ours is on the year round program and they have a two week break in October as well as March. But going to enjoy the cruise, kids or no.

I have never seen an Adult only pool, or at least one enforced yet. Some of the confusion may be from the news that Carnival will have a (Adult serenity pool area) with the Evolutions of Fun re-do of the Fantasy Class ships?

I don't have children but I sometimes travel with my little cousins. I remember one time they didn't want to go to the "kids" pool because they said it was too wild. That came from 9-10 year olds.

IslandCruz - on both the Conquest and Miracle, there were pools marked adult. We never saw any kids in the Miracle adult pool, but there were tons in the Conquest one. I hope they'll enforce the new "Evolutions of Fun" adult pools!

The back of one of my carnival capers from a recent cruise on the Fantasy clearly states that the aft pool is for adults only from 8am-11pm. You couldn't swing a dead cat back there without hitting a kid.
