As far as I know All Cruise Liners use salt water for all their pools and out door Jacuzzi.
TheY do have shower facilities next to all pools/jacuzzi therefore you can rinse the salt of your skin. Pool water is very clean. Germs do not leave in salt! HAPPY SWIMING
Let this thread stand as a reminder to all: BRING CONDITIONER. On my last cruise I didn't bring enough. I also brought a too-small hair brush. The ship hair dryers are pretty weak and require much more drying than usual. Result: frizzy hair to say the LEAST. If you have long hair bring a smooth paddle brush, intensive conditioner (the complimentary creme rinse won't cut it) and some kind of glossing creme...
I was on a Carnival cruise that had an awesome slide... into a salt water pool. That, combined with the wind and sun, made my hair look like a broom!
