Hi 1st time, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!
I wish I could answer the question about the pools. They do look small. I rarely get in them, unless I'm going down a water slide and it is the end result. I don't cruise for the pools though.
I do enjoy the Lido Deck around the pools tremendously. The sun, and fun entertainment going on, and just kicking back in a lounge chair watching the ocean as the ship moves along. This is my idea of a perfect day.
