Complete online check-in for a Carnival cruise by going to Carnival.com and clicking on the Manage My Bookings or Manage Check-In link from the top menu. Create an account or log in to a previously registered account and fill out the check-in form with the Carnival booking number, guest last name, date of birth, ship name and sail date. Follow the prompts to complete the remainder of the check-in process.
Online check-in for Carnival cruises is a four-step process that consists of entering guest information, setting up an onboard expenses account with an external payment method, reviewing and accepting a cruise ticket contract and viewing a check-in summary. Check-in online at any time from when the booking is deposited up until 11:59 p.m. Eastern time the day prior to the sail date. After completing the online check-in process, optionally print a boarding pass to bring to the cruise terminal along with the electronic cruise document. Print boarding passes individually for each guest or print an all-in-one boarding pass for all guests on the reservation.
While it is possible to complete check-in at the terminal, Carnival recommends completing check-in online in advance to make the verification process at the terminal quicker and easier and avoid delays. If the status of a guest's online check-in shows as incomplete, the guest must complete the full registration process at the cruise terminal.
