When you’re heading to the Mexican Riviera on a cruise, make sure you’re choosing a ship that has dedicated space for relaxation and pool time. Only a few cruise lines have gone above and beyond to create unique pool experiences for their guests so you could be enjoying poolside drinks, a few hours of sunbathing, and even live music on the pool deck. If pool-time is a must on your next cruise, make sure to check out these three spectacular pools.

When you’re heading off to Cozumel or other destinations around Central America, you’ll want to spend some time at the South Beach Pool and Forest Aquaventure aboard the MSC Seaside ship. The ship promises plenty of opportunities to relax and enjoy the sunshine as you take in views of the Caribbean Sea. The South Beach Pool is designed in front of a tower of rooms, just like a Miami high-rise. You can take in views of the ocean while you relax in the shimmering blue pool or relax on one of the white beach loungers on the pool deck. For family-fun, make sure to head to the the Forest Aquaventure, which is a themed outdoor waterpark, complete with water slides that run off and back on to the ship.
