Crystal Cruises has announced a check-in process easing embarkation procedures for all guests. Effective today in every Crystal embarkation port, “Crystal Fast-Track Check-In” eliminates 100 percent of ship check-in procedures in port terminal waiting areas, transitioning guests from dock security to Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity lounges.
By utilizing a new barcode on each guest cruise ticket, a new ticket scanning system and the consistency of Crystal’s own onboard crew, the cruise line is accelerating the check-in required on the first day of sailing. As is customary in each embarkation port, porters load guests’ luggage onto the ship, and guests observe required local security procedures as they enter port terminals. However, instead of processing documentation in the terminal, guests are ushered on board to complete registration and receive their room keys or boarding cards with photo identification.
