Carnival Cruise Line will be rolling out a faster embarkation process to three more cruise ships later this month.
This new process has guests picking up their stateroom keys in a sealed envelope that are placed outside of their cabins when their cabins are ready. This is a change from picking them up when checking in and makes the check-in line move much quicker.
This new system is currently in place on Carnival Glory, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Victory, Carnival Vista, and Carnival Splendor. After a successful pilot program on those cruise ships, Carnival Cruise Line will be rolling out it out to more ships at the end of this month. The three new cruise ships to receive this new check-in process will be:
- Carnival Freedom – July 29, 2017
- Carnival Valor – July 29, 2017
- Carnival Breeze – July 30, 2017
Instead of guests using their Sign & Sail card to board the ship (since they won’t have one yet), they will use their boarding pass. If they wish to make a purchase on board before they pick up their keys, their boarding pass can also be used for all purchases on embarkation day.
This new process is safe and secure, and helps speed up the boarding process helping you get on the ship faster. Passengers photos will still be taken at check-in and will appear anytime they make a purchase with their boarding pass or Sign & Sail card.
