Arriving for your cruise

To assist you with planning travel to the port on the day of departure we provide recommended arrival/check-in times for each cruise, which can be found on your cruise ticket. If you arrive earlier than the time shown for your cruise, you are likely to experience delays in embarking. If you find you will be arriving earlier, we suggest that you take a break for a drink or snack somewhere before heading to the cruise terminal. For fly-cruise holidays, please refer to your flight tickets for details of your check-in time at the airport. 

You can find the time for your chosen cruise by locating your ship, cruise number and departure date below for the time we request you arrive from.
