In providing guests with a fast and convenient embarkation process, Carnival Cruise Lines installed self-service check-in kiosks at its Port of Miami cruise terminal.
To utilize the new service, guests have to register online and be a U.S. or Canadian citizen, or from a Visa waiver country.
To access their information, guests swipe their passport or the credit card used to pre-register online. The kiosks will accept cash deposits for guests’ shipboard Sail & Sign accounts.
After checking in, the station prints a receipt, confirming that the registration process is completed and directs guests to pick up their stateroom keys at a nearby desk.
The kiosks are part of a pilot program at the Port of Miami and, if met with positive response from guests, will be expanded to the line’s other year-round homeports.
