For anyone taking a vacation, a pool often is a necessity. For cruisers, the pool deck is pretty much synonymous with cruising. With more than a few from which to choose while onboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, you’ll love the variety and the views from any seat onboard while soaking up the sun.
POOL DECK (Deck 15): The ultimate in pool decks is deck 15 where you’ll find the Main Pool, the Beach Pool, the Sports Pool, and the H2O Zone.
POOLS: The Main Pool is a quiet area for sunbathing and soaking in the hot tub or pool. The Beach Pool has a slanted entry surrounded by deckchairs and umbrellas. The Sports Pool is a pool used for lap swimming and water aerobics in the morning and games like volleyball for the remainder of the day. The H20 Zone is dedicated to families with water sculptures, a family pool, and even kid sized loungers.
POOL DECK BY NIGHT: The ambient lighting at night makes the pool deck look entirely different. I love the glittery lit ceiling, too.
WALKING THE POOL DECK: With my GoPro in hand, I headed out for a walk around the pool deck one day. Scroll through the pics above to see some of the other features of the pool deck.
H2O ZONE: The H20 Zone integrates colorful sculptures around a series of sprinklers, jets and water canons that guests, parents and kids, can use to soak each other.
H2O ZONE SCULPTURES: I couldn’t take enough pictures of the sculptures in the H2O Zone. They’re so bright and colorful! What kid wouldn’t like it in there?
SCULPTURES ON THE POOL DECK: Love the sculptures of the man (Scottish sculptor Shona Kinloch’s “Are You Ready”) and the woman on the pool deck. Yes, I know that the life preserver isn’t a sculpture, but I love those and didn’t know where to put it.
In addition to the pics of the pools and whirlpools above, there are also four cantilevered whirlpools, regular whirlpools, and a hydrotherapy pool in the Solarium as well as the Aqua Theater pool, which is the largest and deepest freshwater pool at sea.
If you’re looking for sunshine and a place to stretch out on your next Oasis of the Seas cruise, I’m sure you can see that there’s bound to be a place for you. Do you have a favorite pool on a cruise ship?
