When we sailed on Allure in 2017, we were disappointed that there wasn’t an easy way for the counselors in Adventure Ocean to notify us regarding our son as we weren’t sure how our he would do.  They had a few “radios” and we were lucky that they weren’t all gone the first time. Another time, the counselor acted strange and said they couldn’t give them out.  We kept going back to check on him every 30 minutes which wasn’t relaxing at all.  We are cruising in 2020 and we now wonder if there is a system in place for parental notification.  TIA!

Relax if he needs you they will find you.  You are putting too much stress on you and him.  Session usually only last 2 hours so let him have fun for that time.  For the 3 hour sessions stop in half way through to check on him or just pick up a ship's phone and call to check on him.  If he did well or even okay the next trip will be even better.  We were seriously concerned about our daughter as she has some special needs and she does awesome there.  Her first two cruises we only sent her to the evening session and the nightly paid care and most times she was not ready to leave when we picked her up.  For our next cruise she wants to try going during the day to see if they activities are better.

The pagers/phones/radios are only for children under 3 or special needs children.

The phones/pagers are usually given out to high(er) risk scenarios where kids are clearly exhibiting an issue that gives the staff pause. 

In my experience, the pagers/phones aren't as necessary as you might think. If there's an issue, the first step is for the staff to call the stateroom and leave a message. If it escalated to a major problem, they have access to your dining/entertainment plans so they could theoretically track you down.

And as a final option, they can do a ship-wide page for you. I've heard those once or twice over the years.
