For 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 Counselor on board the ship is available to assist.
On all ships, a one-time digital registration form is to be completed by a parent or guardian (if child is not traveling with their parent) for each child/teen age 3 - 17. Children/teens can then participate as frequently as they choose during operating hours with space availability.
The registration form requires a primary parent or guardian to be named for the child(ren). This primary person is the only person who can make any changes to the child’s registration form.
Norwegian Cruise Line requests that you let the Youth Staff know if your child has any food allergies and/or noted medical conditions by noting the information on the Registration Form to allow the Youth Staff to provide the best services for your child(ren) while in our care.
