Located also on Deck 14(Lido) Fwd Midship is the "Neptune Reef and Pool," and it's adjacent to the pizzeria. It also has two whirlpools adjacent and is about the same depth of the Calypso Pool (approximately five feet in depth).
The little kids have a "Paddling Pool," which is located inside the Youth Center on Deck 15 (Sun) aft, and the older children have a larger "Splash Pool," which is adjacent to the Youth Center. At the other end Located on Deck 15 (Sun) Fwd, inside the Lotus Spa, is the "Lap Pool." The Lap Pool is an "adults only" pool.

Sapphire Princess Pool and Sunbathing Tips:
When arriving in the pool area, you will need to sign-out a towel. There will be a $22 charge per towel to your onboard account for each towel you fail to return. These are sturdy towels and if you want to purchase one, you can from the order form in your room.
Babies & Infants in Pools: Princess's official policy is "no swim diapers, children must be potty trained." Princess stresses this point to all the families that bring their kids. We have not heard reports on whether or not the policy is strictly enforced.
While Princess does its best to discourage this, sunbathers do show up at 8 AM and try to hog the lounge chairs for the day.
Headphones are a must if a movie is playing in the "Calypso Pool."
There's free popcorn at the "Calypso Pool" during the movie.
