Norwegian Cruise Line Adding Lifeguards To Their Cruise Ships

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that they will be adding lifeguards to the family swimming pools on their cruise ships starting this summer with the program going fleet-wide by 2018.

The first responders will be trained and certified by the American Red Cross in lifesaving rescue measures and will monitor the family pools during scheduled pool hours. The lifeguards 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.

In addition to uniformed lifeguards, Norwegian will also begin offering complimentary swim vests for both adults and children on the line’s four largest ships. Parents can obtain the safety vests at the towel station on the ship’s pool deck during daytime hours.

Norwegian joins Disney Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean in having lifeguards stationed at the pools on their ships.

Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line, gave the following statement:

“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. 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.”
