I came across a recent post on swimming pool history that got my attention. The post mentioned how the infamous Titanic was the first cruise ship to have a swimming pool aboard for guests. Another reader chimed in how this was not accurate. And the debate ensued. From the facts presented, I concur that Titanic was in fact the second cruise ship to have a swimming pool. The first was aboard Adriatic – which was the sister ship of Titanic. Both ships were part of the fleet from White Star Line ocean liners.
These facts on swimming pool history led to some additional searching and I came across a timeline of pool history – put together by the folks at swimmingpool.com
