Norwegian Cruise Line will employ lifeguards across its fleet to work at its family pools.
Guards will be introduced to its largest ships Norwegian Escape, Getaway, Breakaway and Epic this summer and on the remainder of the fleet by early 2018.
President and chief executive, Andy Stuart said: “Norwegian has stationed pool monitors on our largest ships since 2015 and we are now taking further steps to ensure the safety of our youngest guests with the addition of certified lifeguards across our fleet.
“While parents are always the first line of supervision when it comes to water safety, we felt it was important to provide this added measure across our fleet.”
The line is the second to announce the employment of lifeguards this year following Royal Caribbean in February.
The first responders will be trained and certified by the American Red Cross in lifesaving rescue measures and will monitor the pools during scheduled pool hours.
In addition to lifeguards Norwegian will offer complimentary swim vests to adults and children on the line’s four largest ships which can be obtained from the towel station.
