Norwegian Cruise Line (Lifeguard Training)

Miami, FL


Norwegian Cruise Line contracted Counsilman-Hunsaker to conduct ten American Red Cross Lifeguarding training classes in international waters from April 2017 through December 2017 onboard five of the largest vessels in their fleet, including a ship that completed construction in April 2017 intended for the Chinese market. Additionally, Counsilman-Hunsaker was contracted to develop Standard Operating Procedures for lifeguards for two Norwegian Cruise Line vessels in different ship classes. After review of the Standard Operating Procedures, Norwegian Cruise Line decided to begin staffing lifeguards across their entire fleet and to implement fleet-wide adoption of the Standard Operating Procedures.
