All ready for your cruise holiday? We have some great news for you – most cruise lines allow you to save time before you go by checking in for your cruise online. Once you’ve checked in online, you’ll be able to order luggage labels and book excursions directly through the cruise line.
Please note, for any sailings with Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, P&O Australia, or Cunard, Cruise1st is unable to email or post the final travel documentation or provide access to your print-at-home documents until your final balance is paid and online check-in has been completed.
Check-in is much easier if you’ve got everything in hand. Here’s the information you’ll need to complete your online check-in:
- cruise line reference number (this is the supplier reference number on your paperwork)
- passport and visa details (if applicable)
- next of kin emergency contact details
When completing your online check-in, you may also be required to give credit card details to set up an onboard expense account. Cruise lines might also ask for the details of your travel insurance policy.
Travelling to North America? Don’t forget you will require a valid ESTA (Electonic System for Travel Authorisation) for travel to the United States.
