Pool Areas

Two basic pools, with whirlpools attached, provide swimming in the sun for all of the passengers on the Balmoral.


Marquee Deck Pool

The Marquee Deck Pool is found mid-ship and surrounded by sun chairs. There are two whirlpools if you are feeling a little less active.

The Aft Pool

Found near the stern of the Balmoral, and next to the Palms Café, is the Aft Pool. The water is heated and there are plenty of places to lounge, arranged around the water's edge. Two whirlpools abut the Aft Pool for a cozier aquatic experience.
