My Carnival Cruise

February 16, 2013
Carnival Sunshine cabin 9115

Due to security requirements imposed by the U.S Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Carnival Cruise Lines is required to provide specific guest information to the DHS prior to sailing time. It is imperative that this information be collected in advance so as to prevent any additional delays in the embarkation process.

Online Check-In, Steps 1 - 4
Online Check-In consists of the following steps. Details for Steps 1 - 4 can be found below:

Step 1 of 4: Guest Information
Step 2 of 4: Onboard Expenses (Setup Account)
Step 3 of 4: Cruise Ticket Contract (Review and Accept)
Step 4 of 4: Check-In Summary

Online Check-In Procedure- WHEN?
Guests may check-in online, from the time their booking is deposited, up until 11:59pm ET, the day prior to the sail date. Every effort should be made for the guest to check-in online. Guests who complete their Online Check-In will go through a quick verification process once they arrive at the terminal.

Due to U.S Department of Homeland Security regulations for cruises departing from U.S ports, all cruise lines are required to submit a final departure manifest at least 60 minutes prior to departure. As a result of this regulation, guests are required to provide us with check-in information prior to embarkation. The easiest and most convenient way to provide this information is to complete the Online Check-in process at Failure to provide this information by 11:59pm ET the day prior to the sail date may result in delays at embarkation. All guests are required to check-in at embarkation at least 60 minutes prior to the published sailing time.

  • A guest with an ‘Incomplete’ status will be subject to a full registration process at the cruise terminal.

  • TSA Requirements for Fly2Fun Guests – Secure Flight Passenger Data (SFPD)
    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has developed The Secure Flight Passenger Data program (SFPD). Secure Flight is a phased-in process for TSA, Airlines and the GDS to capture and transmit passenger data elements required by the U.S Government to streamline the check-in process. With this program, Fly2Fun guests will be required to enter the following information via Online Check-In in the Citizenship Verification section.
