What time do we have to be on the ship? Due to new government regulations requiring cruise lines to submit final departure manifests at least 60 minutes prior to sailing guests are requested to complete Online Check-in no later than 3 days prior to their cruise. If you do not complete Online Check-in 3 days prior, you will be required to complete this process at the pier at least two hours prior to the published sailing time. Please note: All guests must be checked-in and onboard the ship no later than 90 minutes prior to the published sailing time or you will not be permitted to sail.
What do you do when the ship is in port? There are a host of shore excursions that you can choose from. You can sign up onboard, or sign up online before you travel. If you stay onboard, you can relax by the pool, read a book or just hang out.
Will I get seasick? Chances are you will not. However, if you tend towards motion sickness, you can purchase something over the counter or see your doctor before you go.
