Default Splash Academy question (not a complaint!)

Am I reading correctly that the Port Play is now free? We plan to stay on the ship at Port Canaveral and I assumed my daughter would want to go to the club at some point that day and I was prepared to just pay. But according to the new FAQs on the NCL site, it's saying only Late Night is fee-based now (which I'm sure we'll also take advantage of).

If not, not a huge deal (it wasn't too much money) but if it IS free, that's about $20 more I can add to her souvenier bankroll

Here it is... and it's confusing... it says that its free except they list a charge: $6 per child / per hour... I'm guessing that's the nominal fee they're talking about during meal times.

Yes, that FAQ directly contradicts itself!

It looks like they are now going to do what RCI does - charge ONLY for the Lunch (and dinner hour) which would normally be closed on a port day. So it looks like port play is now free with the exception of the meal times. Well at least that's good news
