Q:  Can I check in for my cruise holiday in advance?
A:  Of course! No matter how you reserve your cruise holiday – with a travel agent, over the phone, or online – you can use our Online Check-In process to speed up your boarding and avoid filling in forms at the pier.

Royal Caribbean International requires guests to be checked in no later than 60 minutes prior to the scheduled sailing time*. Guests arriving late will not be permitted to sail. This supports government regulations in some ports that require cruise lines to submit a departure manifest 60 minutes prior to sailing. Guests are requested to complete Online Check-In no later than three days prior to the cruise in order to expedite the pier check-in process.

*Some sailings may require an earlier check-in time. Please refer to your Guest Ticket Booklets for specific information.
