On a Panama Canal Cruise

Lido is an Italian word for "beach" and forms part of the place name of several Italian seaside towns known for their beach, e.g., Lido di Venezia, the barrier beach enclosing the Venetian Lagoon. Possibly, the term found its way into English from English visitors returning from the Lido di Venezia, where sea-bathing took place from the late 19th century. [from wikipedia]

The pool shut down at night and was covered in a safety net. A video shows how the ship's movement effected the pool surface.
