Does anyone know if the main pool on this ship has a retractable roof? Every other ship we have sailed has this. Since we are leaving from NY, it may be a little chilly the first day so this would be a good thing. Thanks!
It does have a retractable roof & it does help when the weather is cool but on our Hawaiian cruise the doors keep opening & cooling off the place so it didn't feel that warm on the lower level. The upper level was great to sit & lay back with sun shinning in during the afternoon.
We sailed on the Carribbean Princess in Jan. 2007 and all the pools where open, no retractable roof. The main pool has the MUTS, so it could not have a roof.

You can always jump into a hot tub. Of course, after a couple of rum punches, maybe it won't seem so cold I don't think winter is going to leave us alone until June this year. I'm tired of wearing my long johns. Only a couple more weeks to go and hopefully I'll be warm. I'll check to make sure about the roof. I'll be on the Caribbean Princess May 1st.
I would have thought that Alabama would be warmer this time of year. Out temps here in Florida have been warm to say the least & we had to use the AC in our bedroom 2 nights ago. Our pool (unheated) is around 83 or 84 degrees & we'll probably be swimming in a few weeks. I've got to invest in that solar heating system this year.
If there was a rectractable roof, it was very well hidden. I definitely did not see one. The hot tubs were great. The water at Princess Cays was a little nippy. I didn't bring my wet suit, so it was too cold for me to go in. I did walk up and down the beach. The sun was nice and warm, so maybe by the time you get there, the water will be too.
