Here’s the main components shaping how Norwegian is crafting their ‘Peace of Mind' policy…

1. Healthy Sail Panel Partnership

Norwegian Cruise Line has teamed with the Royal Caribbean Group to create the Healthy Sail Panel. This is a panel that consists of 11 globally recognized experts in science, medical practice, medical research, public health, infectious disease, biosecurity, and maritime operations.

This group is guiding the cruise industry with a comprehensive set of recommendations in response to COVID-19.

2. Enhanced Health and Safety Protocols

Guided by the Healthy Sail Panel, Norwegian will implement many new procedures to ensure a stress-free trip, including:

  • All guests and crew must be fully vaccinated, at least two weeks prior to departure.
  • All guests will be required to take a COVID-19 antigen test administered by the cruise line.
  • Streamlined check-in for a faster and hands-free boarding process.
  • Face coverings are required while indoors except within your own accommodations or while eating and drinking in certain venues.

3. Flexible Booking, Rescheduling and Cancellation

With Norwegian’s Peace of Mind policy, cruisers can book confidently. For all cruises through October 31, 2021, guests can cancel up to 15 days prior for a Future Cruise Credit and are able to get a full refund when cancelling up to 60 days prior to departure.

Norwegian Family Cruises are hard to Beat

From dodgeball to cupcake decorating, there are countless activities all over Norwegian’s cruise ships for every age group. There will be modifications, but guests can still expect to get the full cruising experience.

Joy, Gem, and Jade are Great Family Ships

The cruise line’s complimentary youth program for ages 6 months to 17 years makes it easy for everyone to have a blast onboard. Plus, Norwegian offers plenty of different cabin options that are designed specifically to accommodate families. You’ll have plenty of room to lounge onboard the ship after long days of fun under the sun.

Norwegian Joy

In addition to the Splash Academy, a futuristic virtual reality gaming center and mini-theater called the Galaxy Pavilion is a popular feature for kids and adults onboard Norwegian Joy.

At Splash Academy, your kids get to participate in enriching activities in addition to playing with games and toys, and working on arts and crafts projects. If your children have a fascination with virtual reality, send them over to the Galaxy Pavilion so they can put their gaming skills to the test in action-packed games.

Located near the Aqua Park, Kid's Aqua Park is designed to be a safe place for younger kids to splash and play. It is a colorful play area complete with waterslides and cartoon theme toys.

For the older kids onboard the ship, Entourage is a fun teen hangout where they can spend time away from their parents in a safe environment. Entourage offers movies, games, music, and activities geared toward your older kids.
