Royal Caribbean cruise passengers can check in online in advance or at the pier the day of embarkment. Online check in saves time when boarding the ship, but it must be completed at least three days prior to boarding.
To check in online, a passenger must visit the Royal Caribbean website, RoyalCaribbean.com, and provide her reservation number, identification, emergency contact information, and travel plans to and from the ship. A credit card is also required for any expenses accrued on board. Once the online check-in process is complete, the passenger can print her SetSail Pass. The passenger should sign the SetSail Pass and bring it, along with identification and her credit card, to the pier on the day of boarding. Adult passengers are also responsible for bringing the SetSail Pass of any minors in their party.
Passengers who do not check in online must complete the check-in process at the pier at least two hours prior to the cruise departure time. The same documents and information that are needed for online check in are required to check in at the pier. All passengers must be checked in and on board the ship at least 90 minutes prior to sailing time.
