Presuming most 16 year olds don't cry or have temper tantrums- that is good news! Plus, 2 of us are educators and like to avoid kids as much as possible while on vacation!
Thanks for the quick reply.
Have been on the Splendour in November. Loved to be in the Solarium and in the Jacuzzig.
A young couple came with their child, about 2 years young and after a while someone from the crew came along and asked them friendly to leave the Solarium, that the other passengers would not be disturbed.
I must say, I like that, also on the Brilliance and the Jewel. It is such a wonderful place to relax, to read a book, or to have nice conversations in the Jacuzzi and not to be disturbed from crying kids, or jumping kids in the pool. I think, itīs really important to have a place only for adults.
I am all for no adults in the Solarium. Apart from your cabin this seems to be the only place where you can chill out with no children. Three cheers for those staff members who make sure it is adults only.
I am so looking forward to my cruise next June and relaxing in the SOlarium.
Just a point of information for possible future cruising.....
This summer we sailed on the Serenade of the Seas to Alaska. When we had previously sailed on this ship, the Solarium was, indeed, blissfully adult only. However, on an Alaskan trip, even in July, the temperatures around the outdoor pool were very chilly. Therefore the captain decided to have a children's swim time in the Solarium between noon or 1PM and 4PM. I was very disappointed, but I was outnumbered by many parents and their very many children.
At 4PM every day, saints in the form of RCI staff came and cleared the pool and pool area.
