Each piece of checked luggage must have an affixed luggage tag, listing the ship, your name, and cabin number. Additional luggage tags can be obtained from the porters if necessary. It is customary to tip the porters $1-$2 per bag.

Checking-In at the Cruise Terminal

At that desk, you will present your passport (or birth certificate and photo-ID), as well as your boarding pass and e-documents to a Carnival agent, who will then confirm a few details and take your photo.
Setting Up Your Onboard Account
In addition to checking you in for the cruise, the agent will take your form of payment (credit card or cash deposit) for your onboard charges. You will then be presented with your Carnival Sail & Sign Card, which serves as your onboard charge card.
You will use this card to pay for nearly everything you purchase onboard the ship such as alcoholic beverages, duty-free items, spa services, shore excursions, etc. The card is also the key to your cabin, and activates the lights in your cabin. This card will also be your form of ID to get on and off the ship in Grand Turk. You should carry this card with you at ALL times.
If you lose your cruise card, please visit the Guest Services Desk (Deck 73-MID) immediately to get a new one. Keep your card away from water and cell phones as it can get demagnetized and stop working.
Shortly before the ship’s departure, all guests are required to participate in a MANDATORY safety drill (aka, muster drill), which will be held throughout the ship at approximately 3:00pm. Listen carefully for the drill announcements, and proceed to your assigned Muster Station, which will be noted on your Sail & Sign card. The faster you get to your muster station and follow all crew instructions carefully, the faster we can start the music!
