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.

Since staterooms are available from 1:30pm, most guests who arrive before this time check their bags curbside so they can be free to enjoy lunch.

Checked baggage service closes at 2:00pm. Guests arriving after this time will be responsible for taking their own luggage 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 and onboard the ship no later than 60 minutes prior to the published sailing time or you will not be permitted to sail.
