Which made us wonder: are there other artist-designed swimming pools? Turns out there are. Here are 10 of the best artist designed swimming pools in the world. We’d love to take a cooling dip in almost every one of them (we’re looking at you, number 10).

They were the elements for a perfect day at sea on the vessel we traveled on, the Norwegian Bliss luxury cruise ship.
