Sun Princess Pool and Sunbathing
The Sun Princess has 4 pools that are strategically located throughout the ship, and all pools are filled with freshwater. The "Riviera Pool," located on Deck 12 (Riviera) Midship, is really two pool areas divided by a bridge. It boasts a 300 square foot Movie screen with movies shown throughout the day and evening. The "Riviera Pool" area has to 3 adjoining whirlpools.
Located on Deck 12 (Riviera) Aft is the "Lotus Pool," which is adjacent to the Lotus Spa. It also has two whirlpools adjacent and is about the same depth of the Riviera Pool- approximately five feet.
There is a small "Splash Pool," which is located on Deck 15 (Sun) Fwd. This is usually a quieter place for you when you want to get away from the bigger public areas.
Sun 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 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 "Riviera Pool."
There's free popcorn at the "Calypso Pool" during the movie.
