Can I leave the ship on a port day whilst my child is in Splash Academy?
Yes, unless you are given a handy phone* at least 1 authorised pick up person must remain onboard in case the staff or child needs your assistance.
Handy phones or pagers will be given out for the following reasons:
*Pagers and handy phones do not work in port whilst the ship is docked. Therefore, on port days pagers and handy phones will be issued if your child is in nappies or needs assistance with the bathroom and at least one parent/authorised pick-up person is required to stay on board.
Youth Programme Manager reserves the right to issue a handy phone or pager to parents if the situation with the child requires parent/pick-up person assistance.
If a handy phone or pager is issued to you and your child is signed into the programme, not responding to a page or call within 15 minutes will result in a $75.00 fee and your child will be dismissed from the programme.
If a handy phone or pager is issued a fee of $150.00 will be applied to your onboard account if the device is not returned or if it is returned broken.
This policy is in place for the safety of your child and not to cause any inconvenience.
