My wife and I are getting ready to take our first with our 4 year old son on NCL. We plan on using the "kids club", but I don't understand is how they get in touch with you if there is a problem. On their website FAQ 19 states:
Will the Youth Staff contact me if my child is crying?
Yes. Since Norwegian is not able to provide one-one-care or babysitting, the parent(s) will be called to pick up their child after 15 minutes of continuous crying.
Does this mean we need to bring our cell phones? The website mentions a beeper system in FAQ 18:
Can the Youth Staff assist my child in the washroom?
Parents should be aware that Youth Counselors are not able to assist children in the washrooms. This includes pulling up/down pants, buttoning/unbuttoning pants, and/or wiping assistance. A beeper or handy phone will be issued to alert you when your child needs assistance. Beepers and handy phones do not work ashore. At least one parent will have to stay on board when their children are in our Youth Program.
Is this used for all children or only toddlers that cannot go to the bathroom completely independently?
