Take Advantage of our Youth Programmes


Guppies (6 months – 2 years)

Exclusively for teeny-weeny guests and their parents, Guppies offers up to two hours a day of fun things like nursery rhymes, messy painting and other stuff to make babies, toddlers and their grown-ups smile. And on board Norwegian Escape there’s nursery service, too!

Splash Academy

Splash Academy (3 – 12 years)

Splash Academy is fun central for your kids, bringing them their own play zone where they can get together with other cruisers in one of three different age groups and do amazing things. We’re talking creative play, sports, games, team-building challenges, arts & crafts and activities with wow factor like circus school, pizza making and themed night activities, such as pirates, cowboys and spies. It’s all supervised by our friendly, professionally-trained youth staff members, so you know they’re in safe hands. And, what’s even better, it’s all FREE during advertised programme times.


Entourage (13 – 17 years)

Entourage makes cruising seriously cool for teenagers. First up they get their own zone to hang out in, which is a hip lounge by day and a happening club at night. Then there’s a whole lot of stuff going on like video games, Wii™ tournaments, movies, parties, sports, theatre workshops, circus school and pool parties, all geared to their age group. It’s organised by our youth staff who have a real knack of knowing what teens want to do and how to make it happen. And, like Splash Academy, it’s FREE. Just try keeping them away.
