Pools

I have heard the pools on the wonder and magic are actually larger than the ones on the dream and fantasy, can anyone confirm this?

Whether slightly larger or not, often it's moot.

Ha! Well still with the smaller ships there would be about 1 thousand less people in the pools.

I think that part of it is perception since the deck area is larger on the new ships. The same size pool would look smaller on that deck than the classic deck. The Fantasy has more water feature areas to help spread out the crowd. Adults can escape to Satellite Falls and kids can go to the water park area. There is also a small wading pool above the adult pool that is for families. Kids have to be PTd but that is a great place to get away from the crowd at the kid pools if your little one is feeling overwhelmed.
