Norwegian Cruise Lines - Childcare

Norwegian Cruise Lines for Families

A Norwegian Cruise Line cruise really is a perfect family holiday. This is a cruise experience where you can unwind while your children are just winding up. Welcome to Norwegian Cruise Line cruise's Youth Programmes, for children aged from 6 months to 17 years old. With three programmes custom designed for each age group, family cruise holidays have never been so much fun. Norwegian Cruise Line does not offer individual babysitting. 

Activities may include

  • Age-appropriate, supervised activities
  • T-shirt for painting
  • Mum's and Dad's night out
  • Kid's/Teen's Crew News
  • Chef's hat (for cooking classes)
  • Birthday party (for kids celebrating a birthday)
  • Child Care Centre

Norwegian Cruise Line's Guppies

For those cruise passengers aged between 6 months and two years old, not only is this the perfect way for children to bond and learn new skills but it is great to give mum and dad a chance to relax for a little. Guppies offers up to two hours per day of child care where your little one can enjoy nursery rhymes, painting and much more. Norwegian Escape even offers a nursery service.

Norwegian Cruise Line's Splash Academy

For kids from age 3-12, Norwegian Cruise Line offers everything from arts and crafts to pyjama parties. Here, you can enjoy a hot-stone massage, a yoga class or a cocktail by the pool while the little ones are having the time of their lives. But don't think of Kid's Crew as babysitting ' there's very little sitting involved! This program is active, energetic, educational and, most importantly, fun. Children involved in any of the childcare programmes will be under the constant supervision of carefully chosen, qualified staff. Each member of the childcare staff attends a special training course on safety, communication skills and confidence-building. 

Norwegian Cruise Line's Entourage

With Norwegian Cruise Line’s Entourage programme for teens aged 13-17, cruising can be cool. With their own private hang out area which switches from a relaxing lounge in the day to a club at night there is plenty to keep them occupied. There are plenty of activities, including video game tournaments, movie nights, pool parties and workshops there is something to keep everyone busy and everyone happy.

Peace of Mind

Norwegian Cruise Line - Childcare
It's easier for you to relax when you know your children are safe and happy. Each child's name, stateroom number, allergies, medications and lifeboat station numbers are written on the back of their Kid's Crew ID bracelets. Teenagers are free to come and go as they please, and children 12 years and younger are not allowed to leave the program unless picked up by a parent. And when the day is done, you'll find our family suites and connecting and adjacent staterooms are perfect for family togetherness and privacy.
