Review your cruise documents in advance for important guidelines and travel tips.
Prior to leaving home, call the airline - or check their website for flight arrival/departure information.
Be at the airport early - 2 hours or more unless local circumstances dictate allowing a longer time. Security screenings take additional time.
Minimise carry-on luggage or be prepared to have them searched and suspicious items confiscated (nail files, scissors/clippers, etc).
Make sure luggage is clearly tagged with the completed coloured bag-tags provided with your documents.
Make sure necessary medical items are with you rather than in checked luggage.
Make sure you have your passport and other travel identification on your person - not in checked Lower the stress level of "getting to the ship on-time" by arranging a pre-cruise land package. Consider coming in a day early - especially when flying a long distance to the cruise.
Expect delays and longer lines - and be pleasantly surprised if they are not that bad.
Be patient - once onboard your cruise, you will have a fantastic time!
