  • Guests are encouraged to limit their luggage to two suitcases per guest.
  • Each suitcase should not weigh more than 50 pounds (22.68 Kilograms) and should not exceed 16"H x 24"W (40.64cm x 60.96cm); there are no length restrictions. This is printed on the eDoc bag tags as well.
  • If traveling by air, each airline has its own restrictions on the maximum size, weight and the number of suitcases allowed per person.
  • In order to offset high fuel costs, some airlines are charging fees for the 2nd suitcase checked; some airlines are charging for the 1st suitcase checked as well.
  • The guest is responsible for contacting the airline to learn about the restrictions and policies for that airline.
  • We suggest that all checked luggage be unlocked and have a Carnival luggage tag attached listing the guest's name and stateroom number.
  • For those guests who wish to carry-on their luggage, it cannot exceed 16"H x 24"W (40.64cm x 60.96cm); there are no length restrictions; anything larger must be checked-in with a curbside porter.

  • Embarkation Baggage Procedures

    After arriving at the cruise port, all guests will follow the same procedure with their luggage, whether they arrive by taxi, car or transfer bus.

  • Additional tags can be obtained at curbside from the porter, if necessary.
  • Guests with a TBA assignment will receive new tags at the pier; the porters will re-tag the luggage according to final stateroom assignment.
  • Each piece of luggage should be unlocked before turning over to the porters in order to avoid any inconvenience or delay in delivering the luggage to the stateroom. Should a guest choose not to unlock their bags and prohibited items are found during screening, the luggage will be retained until the guest can open it in front of security personnel.
  • Since the delivery of checked luggage may take some time to reach the stateroom, guests may elect to bring their luggage on board if they do not exceed 16”H x 24"W (40.64cm x 60.96cm); there are no length restrictions. Carnival assumes no responsibility for carry-on luggage. Note: Luggage larger than 16"H x 24” (40.64cm x 60.96cm) must be checked-in with a curbside porter.
  • Curbside porters are available at the pier to take luggage to the vessel for delivery to the guest's stateroom by shipboard personnel. Guests must first identify their bags to a curbside porter. Customary tip is $1 per bag. Curbside porters are not employees of Carnival; therefore, if the guest experiences any problems, they must report them to porter management on site.
  • Additionally, we highly recommend that guests personally carry-on any boarding documentation (passports, Visas, I.D), valuables, medications and items, which require special handling on/off the ship.
  • Coolers: Carnival Cruise Lines does not allow guests to bring large coolers on board its vessels. Small, personal-sized coolers no larger than 12” x 12” x 12” (30.48cm x 30.48cm x 30.48cm) for the purpose of housing small quantities of non-alcoholic beverages and/or medications are permitted as carry-on luggage. Screening and movement of large coolers through embarkation is an impediment to the boarding and security screening process and therefore large coolers are not permitted as carry-on or checked luggage.
