What are Youth Programmes?

Youth Programmes is the umbrella of programmes for children 6 months to 17 years old which consists of:

Guppies Programmes The Guppies Programme offers parents many opportunities to interact with their infants/babies/toddlers and promote growth and development of infants/ babies/toddlers 6 months - 3 years old. Please refer to the Guppies activity programme for the location, dates, and times. The timetable varies per ship and itinerary. The programmes are:

1. Guppies Open Play: A play space for parents and babies to play together with a variety of toys, balls, interactive games, and blocks. This is offered across the fleet and is not a drop off programme.

2. Guppies Hosted Activities: Activities are hosted by the Early Years Coordinator (or Nursery Attendants on the Norwegian Escape) for parents and babies. This is offered across the fleet and is not a drop off programme.

3. Guppies Nursery: Only on Norwegian Escape, a fee-based drop off nursery for children 6 months to under 3 years old. The Guppies Nursery requires an onboard registration per child and reservations for available time blocks throughout the sailing. The programmes are created and implemented by certified Nursery Attendants and offers infants/babies/toddlers a wide range of toys, and engaging, sensory, and developmental activities linked to a daily theme.

Splash Academy is a drop off programme for child ages 3 - 12 (Turtles, Seals, Dolphins) offering high energy, interactive, themed based programming.

For Guppies Nursery, Splash Academy, and Entourage, it is recommended that parents register their child(ren) and teen(s) as soon as they board the ship. Any Youth Counsellor on board the ship is available to assist. Guppies Nursery also requires reservations to secure a time block session throughout the sailing.

*The minimum age eligible for Splash Academy is 3 years old at the time of sailing, based on the child's date of birth, according to their birth certificate or passport reflected on the ships manifest.

**Refer to FAQ: What do I need to know about the 10-12 year old parent sign-out authorisation?

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.
