The Lido deck features the two main outdoor pools, the Calypso and Neptune Reef and Pool, while there is also a small outdoor terrace pool and pools in the Lotus and Sanctuary areas.
The Calypso is an outdoor section on the Lido deck that offers a small pool with fairly extensive seating around the outside. The pool also features two hot tubs and the Calypso bar, which sits out of the water facing the pool.
The Lotus Spa pool is a small outdoor pool located in the Lotus Spa, which offers complimentary access to those staying in suites with balconies. The Lotus Spa features two hot tubs, a full arrangement of massage and body treatments, as well as the pool. There is also a full fitness center located in the spa.
The Neptune’s Reef and Pool sits opposite the Calypso, also on the Lido deck, and features a similarly small swimming area with two swimming pools and extensive seating surrounding the water. While both pools are situated right next to one another, the Neptune sits closer to many of the on-deck casual dining options, like the pizza and ice cream bar, Mermaid’s tail, and the Trident Grill.
The terrace pool is a small pool that sits at the rear of the Riviera deck below the Horizon Terrace and offers a panoramic view of the horizon behind the Ruby Princess. The swimming area is smaller, but the pool itself is located near many of the cabins on the ship, separate from the main pool and deck areas.
