SPLASH ACADEMY

Guppies: 6 months – 3 years (daily activities are offered for babies with their parents)

Turtles: 3 – 5 year olds

Dolphins: 10 – 12 years old (6 – 12 year olds in low season)


Seals 6 – 9 year olds

Entourage: 13 – 17 year olds

Although Guppies are part of Splash Academy and hosted by the Early Years Coordinator, the program requires a parent to be in attendance. Guppies does not offer a drop off option.

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 authorization?

A one-time registration form is to be completed by a parent or guardian for each child/teen age 3 – 17. Children/teens can then participate as frequently as they choose. Norwegian requests that you let the Youth Staff know if your child has allergies and/or is taking any medications by noting this on the Registration Form. We will need to know this information in advance, as we sometimes provide snacks.
