Online Check In

All ready for your cruise holiday? We have some great news for you – most cruise lines enable 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, Princess, P&O or Cunard, Cruise1st Australia 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.

What Do You Need?

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:

  • Your cruise line reference number (this is the supplier reference number on your paperwork)
  • Your 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 details of a credit card to set up an on-board expense account. Cruise lines might also ask for the details of your travel insurance policy.

Other Important Documents
