Default "Manage my Cruise"

When do you all enter all the information online - passport numbers, emergency contact info, etc. under the "manage my cruise" on Carnival's website? I normally would have that done by now, but for some reason I am putting it off. It seems like too much work now and I am just really wanting to get on that ship oh, but I will eventually get around to it, that's for sure - it has to done and documents to be printed out! By the way, I am in need of a new printer and a new camera. Better be shopping at Best Buy tomorrow. I hate shopping. LOL

We usually fill out our Fun Pass information right after we make final payment, print out the paperwork, and put it into our Cruise folder along with paperwork for our excursions and hotel. Once that's done we do the document dance all over the house

I really like that one...the "document dance" even better than the "safety dance" ..LOL.. Maybe a couple of beers are in order too as we do the "document dance" here! Good idea!!! Thanks!

I did most of it the hour after we booked. I went in the other day and put the passport numbers in. I had them in a safe and did not grab them.

Technically you don't have to do it at all.

You can just take care of it at the port and spend ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL that 'too much work now' doing it there and not getting on board as fast as you would like to.

Do it now or not now .. No Matter what you will have to do it before you board

I would only buy those items at Best Buy if you feel the need to touch them before you buy them. You can usually find a much better price and get things of course tax free by buying online.

Only info stored is address and name. Credit card, flight info and passport info need to be reentered. You also need to accept your cruise contract.

I decided I didn't want to have to go out today and I had priced out some printers online yesterday, so I went ahead a bought a printer already this morning...didn't get it from BB though. But I did have to pay tax

Maybe I don't "get" it, but after you have your passport numbers, your airplane flights/times and payment information, it's just entering some basic data online. I think an hour (or less) of your time will pay off once you get on board.

OP --

Thanks for starting this thread.

I filled out all our info in Jan for our upcoming Nov cruise. Since then, we have renewed our passports and I need to go back and update the new pp info.

Don't think I would have even thought about it without seeing your post.

She was upset because it was during the "safety dance"! LOL!

you can print out everything but the Fun Pass (including luggage Tags) once you get through thePassport info. You can't print the Fun Pass until you establish the credit card info (which we wait for closer to the cruise, usually after final Payment)

I fill out the Fun Pass as soon as I book. I dont print the docs until it gets closer to cruise. I donot print the luggage tags, learned my lesson in Nov bout that. Had printed the tags n laminated them I get an upgrade and had to print all over. So now Im waiting to the week of cruise. But everything is ready to print and go in my travel folder.
