Royal Caribbean Adding Lifeguards Fleetwide
Royal Caribbean International will be implementing an enhanced ‘Child Water Safety Program’ fleetwide between now and June 15, 2017, beginning with Oasis of the Seas.
Right from embarkation, parents and kids will receive a 5-minute water safety presentation during the Adventure Ocean open house session. Youth staff and cruise directors will go over all water safety rules at the Evacuation Plan safety drill on the first evening, Teens 411 info session, daily messaging and Kids Compass. Most importantly, licensed lifeguards clearly marked in a red and white uniform will be stationed at every pool, including the Solarium pools.
Complimentary swim vests will be available in three different sizes for children between the ages of 4 and 12, together with instructions on how to properly fit the life vests. Multiple towel stations will also be accessible for convenience. Plus, in order to transcend language barriers, Royal Caribbean is re-vamping pool rules signage, stateroom signage and digital signage to provide visual cues to guests from different nationalities.
Please note: Adult supervision is required at all times for children under 12, and lifeguards will not provide babysitting services at any point in time.
