I think you might be getting muddled up with whirl pools with up to 6 on some ships, but most just have 2 outdoor pools and two have an indoor one. [Star & Dawn].

If the answer is "NO", will that stop them? Think we all know the answer to that! Happy cruising.

Don't forget that a few of the larger, newer NCL ships actually have "private Villas" on board with their own small pools. When you include these, together with "splash" pools, childrens paddling pools and what you and I would recognise as a pool, then this is where they get their figure of 10 from! Happy cruising.

On the NCL Jewel in March cruising the Caribbean there were only 2 pools and for the 2nd week going to Mexico the same only with 1000 teenagers on board so one could not even see the pools or hot tubs let alone use them.!!!!!!!!!!!
