There are two main pool areas on the Summit, as well as a kids pool and the Aquaspa.
The Waterfall pool is the main pool of the Summit, which includes four hot tubs in the same area. Surrounding the pool are cushioned lounge chairs and sun chairs. A towel stand is located at one end. The poolside bar provides everybody with drinks, and is located on the smoking side of the pool area. That’s where all the cool kids hang out.
The thalassotherapy pool is filled with salt water, ionized, and heated. In the nooks on both sides are several powerful jets that get the water to a good, bubbling action. You can sit on the ionization bars. On one side of the pool is a fresh water hot tub if you’re feeling overly-salted in the ocean water. There are also fresh water showers, as Celebrity asks everybody to shower before going into the pool.
This area is much quieter than the main pool, but it fills up fast on sea days. The teak lounge chairs are placed around the pool and overlook the ocean. It’s a beautiful, peaceful space. Thankfully, kids under 16 are not allowed.
The kids pool is located at the other end of the adults area, on deck eleven. It’s just a small pool – nothing like the super-size kiddie pools found on larger, more family-oriented ships.
