Okay, after reading an entire plethora (sorry I was thinking about 3 amigos) of posts about kids in the hot tub or adult pool or whatever it is, I began to wonder does that hot tub stay open 24/7??? I could always just go late when the kids are asleep

Nope and that sucks. just when all the kids are in bed , the moon is full, a slight chill to the air, a perfect night for a hot tub. you go down there and there is a net over it. I think it's 10pm or something close that they close it.

Now that they've done away with the adults-only area, it would be a great gesture if they would designate one hot tub to be open until at least 2:00 AM. If everyone sends an e-mail to Carnival with this (and other) reasonable suggestion, it just might happen!

tn... I'm all for it as long as no children are allowed in. I've been splashed in the face, kicked, jumped on. It's not fun when you're there to relax. If Carnival is going to have an "adults only" hot tub, then they should have someone there to enforce it while it's open.

On the Triumph and the Glory there was a Hot tub inside the Spa that I never saw any kids use. Try that one if you want stay in an adult tub. It may actually be adults only I don't remember.

And for crying out loud, when the capacity is 6, don't be a tub hog ... we just got off Ecstacy and there was a family of 6 - counting the baby in the diaper - that spent over an hour in the tub ... mostly sitting on the side with their feet and legs in the water. Saw 2 people ask about getting in and when they walked up one or two of them would slide off the side into the water.

When we sailed on the Elation out of Galveston (this was in 2002, I think), hubby and I were very impressed by the ability of the staff to "shoo" children and under-agers out of the hot tub, in a polite and friendly -- but firm -- manner. No one seemed to get upset (least of all the children, who happily trotted off to the pool the staff directed them to).

We can't expect children to be tiny adults -- they should have fun in a pool! That is why it is important that adult-only rules (such as with hot tubs) should be enforced. So adults can enjoy adult activities and children can be children. Everyone has a better time, then.

I thought children under 13 or 14 weren't allowed in hot tubs by law. Or am I wrong?

What law is that? U.S. law doesn't apply in open waters, but even on land I've never heard of a 14 year old age limit.
