Carnival Cruise Line has made three new changes and updates recently. Among these new changes are to help speed up embarkation and debarkation on their cruise ships. These new changes were announced by Carnival’s Brand Ambassador John Heald.
In an effort to help speed up embarkation, Carnival has changed the way they handle the health questionnaire that every cruiser has to fill out before they board a cruise ship. The cruise line has switched to a fast, rapid system done on a tablet, eliminating the paper form that cruisers have filled out for years.
This new system is being tested on select Carnival cruise ships. How will you know if your cruise ship is one of the ones testing this new process? If your health form is not online when you print your boarding passes, then it will be done electronically at embarkation.
The new electronic health form should help speed up the boarding process and get you on the ship faster. However, that isn’t the only new change being made by Carnival Cruise Line.
Lets be honest for a minute, debarkation is by far the worst part of a cruise. There is nothing like enjoying ship life one minute, and then the next standing in line for customs that feels like you’re at the DMV.
To help with this, Carnival is also trying a new debarkation system. This new system is being tested on all of their cruise ships and according to Heald, it appears to be working.
What exactly did Carnival change? Heald didn’t say. Cruise Fever reached out to Carnival Cruise Line and asked about specifics of this new debarkation system. We have yet to hear back at the time of press and will update this article when we do.
However, if this new system makes debarkation smoother and less painful, that’s all that really matters.

The third change from Carnival Cruise Line is an updated Hub App. Within the next few weeks, new updates will be added to the app that will greatly improve each passenger’s experience onboard Carnival cruise ships.
The Hub App has been wildly popular since Carnival first introduced it over a year ago.
