Priority Check-In

Published 03/11/2015 10:43 PM   |    Updated 02/18/2022 02:50 PM

Carnival’s Priority Check-in is an exclusive service designed to afford our VIFP Platinum* and Diamond* guests, and those traveling in deluxe suite accommodations, with special embarkation and debarkation privileges. The guest's boarding pass will be stamped PRIORITY for terminal and Captain’s Lounge** access. Minors traveling with parents in separate staterooms, may check in together.     

Given our focus on meeting the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) requirement and implementation of our new health and safety protocols, VIFP Platinum and Diamond guests must adhere to their arrival appointment time.  

In addition, Diamond, Platinum and deluxe suite guests will receive a debarkation letter offering a choice of how they would prefer to disembark the ship and will receive special luggage tags once on board.   

** Some cruise terminals offer a designated area for Priority guests, in lieu of a lounge.
