Making cruise check-in easier when sailing from Miami, Carnival Cruise Lines will have check-in counters at Miami International Airport (MIA) so passengers can get their boarding cards before arriving at the cruise port. Open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Concourses D and H on the day of sailing, cruise passengers retrieve their luggage at baggage claim and are directed to their check-in counter, based on flight arrivals.
Carnival Cruise Lines guests also will receive their Sail & Sign onboard charge card at the airport if guaranteeing purchases on their ship with a debit or credit card. Using cash, they must stop by a cruise terminal check-in counters or use an onboard Sail & Sign kiosk.
Also new, if Carnival Cruise Lines passengers did not pre-purchase Carnival’s transfers to the port, they buy them during the check-in process. Your clients must take their luggage with them whether using Carnival’s transportation service or other means.
When arriving at the pier, pre-checked passengers will present boarding cards and a photo ID to verify their identity and pass through a security check. Basically, they skip the check-in deck at the pier because they did it at the airport.
