It’s very important that you give yourself plenty of time to board before you set sail. Please note there are two important arrival times to note: embarkation time and departure time.

EMBARKATION TIME

Embarkation time is when you should arrive at the cruise terminal. We ask that you please do not arrive any earlier than one hour prior to the embarkation time noted in your eDocs, because security regulations might prohibit early entrance.

DEPARTURE TIME

Departure time is when your ship sets sail. We highly encourage you to board no later than two hours prior to the departure time noted in your eDocs. This will give you enough time to complete your check-in at the cruise terminal before boarding; your online check-in must be completed prior to arrival.

BOARDING CHECKLIST:  Be sure to bring these

  • Government-issued photo ID
  • Passport, if applicable
  • eDocs (One copy per stateroom)
  • Luggage labeled with bag tags
  • Credit card for onboard expenses*
  • Small bag with essentials**

*We strongly recommend you NOT use a debit credit card.
**Bring along what you need to lounge by the pool deck while waiting for your bags to be delivered to your stateroom—medication, change of clothes, sunscreen, swim suit, sunglasses, camera, etc.


GETTING TO YOUR CRUISE PORT

Take the guesswork out of getting to your ship. Get driving directions and arrange for transfers from your airport or hotel ahead of time. And if you are flying in, don’t forget to claim your luggage at the airline’s baggage claim area.

GET THE INSIDE SCOOP

Upon check-in at the cruise terminal, you’ll receive your first issue of the TFC – Fashion On The Sea Spring Edition Zine, which details the day’s activities and special events and is a great way to get a feel for the ship. The zine will be delivered to your stateroom every evening, with info to help you plan the following day.
