Before The Cruise

Guests should plan to arrive the day before the cruise departs to avoid any potential flight delays, lost baggage, or other problems that may occur. On the date of departure, we recommend that you schedule your flight arrival by no later than 1:00pm-ET. 

Check-in for the cruise will begin around Noon, and all guests must be on the ship by no later than 3:00pm-ET, as we will set sail at 3:30pm-ET.

After The Cruise

When booking your return flight, Carnival recommends scheduling your departure for after 12:00pm-CT

There will be multiple photo-only meet and greets scheduled throughout the cruise, with most of our performers participating. ShipRocked’s photographers will be taking all of the meet and greet photos for you, and the photos will be posted on our Facebook and Flickr pages following the cruise. 

Lines for each meet and greet session will start to form 30-minutes prior to each session. Please note that due to the number of ShipRocked performers and guests, lines may need to be cut, subject to the limited time available. Additionally, meet and greet sessions may end early should there be no more guests in line.

Artists will not be able to sign autographs during the meet and greet sessions.

Yes. For shows on the Deck Stage, it is located on Deck 11 in front of the Port side staircase between Decks 11-12 (see image below, and please note route of entry). We will also have three areas in the Theater (see image below).
