Norwegian Cruise Line to Add Lifeguards

It doesn’t seem that long ago that I wrote about Royal Caribbean Cruise Line following Disney Cruise Line’s lead by adding lifeguards to their pools. I’m now happy to report that Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that it will employ certified lifeguards at all family pools across their fleet.

Lifeguards will be trained and certified by the American Red Cross in lifesaving rescue measures and will monitor the family pools during scheduled pool hours. They will begin service this summer on the line's four largest ships - Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Epic - and on the remainder of the fleet by early 2018.

"Norwegian has stationed pool monitors on our largest ships since 2015, and we are now taking further steps to ensure the safety of our youngest guests with the addition of certified lifeguards across our fleet,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of NorwegianCruise Line. “While parents are always the first line of supervision when it comes to water safety, we felt it was important to provide this added measure across our fleet."

In addition to uniformed lifeguards, Norwegian Cruise Line will also begin offering complimentary swim vests for both adults and children on the line's four largest ships.
