Of my 4 most recent cruises, the 2 to Alaska I used the pool. The 1 to the Caribbean and the 1 to Hawaii, I did not use the pools, but did swim in the ocean.

Swimming the in pool was fine. It was the second I got out of the pool that was the problem! Have your sweats and robe real nearby to get into F A S T !

I bet this will depend where you are from! I could bet a million dollars that when we go in Aug, if there is a day above 60 my kids will be in that pool! But we live in Maine, and 60 is summer weather. They swim in the ocean all summer, so a heated pool is going to be heaven! Now if we lived in Florida, I bet my kids wouldn't set foot in a pool in Alaska! It probably has a lot to do with what you are used to.

I am a wimp however, so you won't catch me in the pool!!! I will be huddled up on a chair watching them with my coffee, blankets, and sweatshirt.

I love Disney Cruises, but I would never go on a Disney ship to Alaska for that reason. Royal Caribbean has solarium enclosed swimming and that was the best. The sun through the glass was so warm and with the steam from the pools it was wonderful. You could never sit out on deck or enjoy it anywhere else where it was open.

We sat out on deck quite a bit, enjoying the scenery and looking for animals --- just not in our swimsuits. I didn't take an Alaskan cruise to sunbathe though.

There are outdoor pools (heated of course) at almost every ski resort I've been to. Sometimes it is half inside and you can swim to the outside part, but more often you just run out, jump in, and stay. Many hot tubs outside in all parts of the cold country (Wis, Minn, Oregon, Cal, Colo). I've been in them in almost blizzard conditions, with frozen hair and snow on my face.

60 degrees? Please.

Does Anyone swim on Alaska cruise?

Of course they do. There is a snorkeling excursion in Ketchikan and maybe some of the other ports too

In Alaska, the cabinets on deck that hold towels also contain thin blankets (similar to airplane blankets, but somewhat larger) for keeping warm while watching Funnelvision.
