Disney Cruise Line Adds Lifeguards
(10:32 a.m. EDT) --
Disney Cruise Line
quietly became the first major cruise line to have lifeguards onboard its ships in late September when it began stationing them at its family pools on
will get lifeguards by mid-November.
The lifeguards are always on duty, so long as the family pool is open. The pool is closed at night, and sometimes closed during bad weather or special events.
Disney said it regularly evaluates onboard practices and makes changes when necessary. Like at most hotels and resort, cruise ships do not employ lifeguards at their pools.
The move comes six months after a
four-year-old boy nearly drowned
just hours after getting on Disney Fantasy. Two weeks ago a
six-year-old boy drowned
onboard a Carnival cruise ship.
