Carnival’s updated embarkation rules and departure times are now as follows:
- Guests must select their Arrival Appointment and complete their Online Check-in process no later than midnight prior to their sailing date.
- Please arrive promptly within your Arrival Appointment to reduce your wait time in line.
- At check-in, you must present your boarding pass, picture ID, citizenship documents (including any necessary visas) and completed Health Questionnaire.
- Guests who are scheduled to arrive at the terminal before 1:30 PM, usually check their bags with a porter so they can be free to enjoy lunch on Lido Deck before access to their stateroom is granted.
- Checked baggage service is only available until 2 hours before the ship’s published departure time. Guests arriving after this time will be responsible for taking their bags on board.
- If you are a Diamond, Platinum guest or have purchased Faster to the Fun, you may proceed to your stateroom as soon as you board.
- Lunch is served on Lido Deck from boarding until the commencement of the safety briefing.
- All guests must be checked-in for final boarding 60 minutes prior to the published sailing time or they will not be permitted to sail.
