Before You Cruise Information
PACK YOUR IDENTIFICATION
Make sure your I.D. is in your handbag, wallet or carryon. You will NOT be permitted to board without it.
CHECK IN ONLINE IF POSSIBLE
Once you receive your confirmation number you can check in online and put in your payment for your sign and sail card. You can get printable ship luggage tags and your cabin number, also purchase beverage and internet packages or register a child with the ships' childrens programs.
Most cruise lines have improved their boarding procedure. Carnival now scans your I.D. when you board; if you've already checked in on line you will NOT have to wait on line to get your cabin key. It will be waiting for you at your cabin.
IF YOU WANT TO GO STRAIGHT TO THE POOL OR HOT TUBS
There will probably be a delay before your luggage arrives at your cabin. If you want to waste no time getting to the pools or hot tubs you can have your swim wear and gear in your carryon. You can even wear your bathing suit underneath your travel outfit. Towels are available at the pools and hot tubs.
For more information about boarding including what and how much beverage each passenger is allowed to bring on, please visit the individual cruiseline websites.
