Royal Caribbean Financial Services Department Deliver the WOW!


Whether it’s swimming or splashing, our guests enjoying pool and aquatic areas on board our ships are kept safe by our lifeguard staff. Ready to perform rescue procedures, including administering first aid, CPR, oxygen, and AED, our lifeguards ensure the well-being of our guests while monitoring aquatic recreational areas.

All lifeguard staff applicants must pass a swim test and complete a training course in order to become a lifeguard on board. During the swim test, applicants will be asked to demonstrate these abilities:

  • Swim 50 meters using freestyle or breaststroke without rest or touching the pool bottom
  • Retrieve a 10 lb. weight from the deepest part of the pool
  • Tread water for 1 minute without use of hands
