Pool over library?

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 7 May 2013 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

...What doesn't show in this image is that the library is on two floors, the one you see beneath the pool and another below it.

Energy-Efficient Window
Across the fleet we have applied window films that are specially glazed to prevent solar heat from penetrating, thereby reducing the amount of air conditioning needed to cool the ship, thereby saving energy. On Celebrity Solstice, the glass windows are specially manufactured to prevent the amount of solar heat from penetrating the area. The glazing of the windows allows for natural light to enter the ship while filtering 99.9 percent of UV rays. This feature also protects our interiors and furnishings from sun damage and helps cut back on future waste.

How glamorous. I think it would be hard to get off this ship! Seems like it has everything one could want to do.

You had a great viewpoint to get this interesting picture of the relationship between the pool and the library floors beneath. Amazing construction.

@Don: Thanks, Don ... it was amazing.

Rick from Toronto, Canada

Very dramatic design and photo. They must have a lot of confidence that the pool will never spring a serious leak!

7 May 2013 3:26pm

@Rick: I agree ... they must have some super kind of lining beneath that pool! ;D

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

You have really captured the design element of the ship in this image.

@Ruthiebear: Thank you, Ruthie ... and did you see the man in the glass elevator?

Looks like a great place to chill with a good book - or The Good Book, either one. ;-)

@B. Thomas: Amen to that! ;D

Interesting way to enjoy a good book! I read the thing about the window glazing with much interest also; we had that done to the east, west and south windows of our home a couple of months ago - it's making a big, big difference in heating/cooling bills and comfort in general already. Plus it was amazingly inexpensive.

@Viewfinder: Very interesting, Glenn ... I've very curious about the glazing you had done. Email some info if you get a chance; we'd appreciate it. Our electric isn't bad, but some of our double-paned windows have lost their seals. ;(

Wow! It looks like it would be a wonderful view sitting at those couches, but I think I wouldn't swim in the pool on top! I'd feel like some zoo exhibit,manatee or something,hahaha!:)

@tyan: Ha, ha ... just know there are no underwater windows, so if you stay underwater you can't be 'seen'. <grin>

Great impression of size, must be the effect of all that glass.

That is fantastic protecting you guys inside, and the architecture is brilliant ! I can't get my bearing of how the pool is there but the dynamic of it is fantastic.

@Abena: I was amazed at the view as we went to the elevator. I knew where the library floors were, but never envisioned the pool being directly above them. ;D

Sharon Pleasants from Monroe, Louisiana, United States

There is so much to see in this one shot! Excellently presented, Judy. I'm especially intrigued by the individuals sitting in their chairs reading.
