Royal Caribbean now provides its tickets as an electronic document (e-doc). If you have made a booking through a travel agent, we will send the e-doc to them and they will then forward this to you, either by email or they can print it and provide you with a paper copy.
Our e-doc comes in two formats; the first is a link to the online version which you access through the internet and your web browser. This is a full colour version which has photos and links to the important sections on our website; to book shore excursions, speciality dining, check-in etc. It has a great deal of information about what to do to prepare for your cruise, how things run onboard and details of our policies and the requirements for travel. We strongly recommend that this online version is viewed, so you can ensure that you are aware of any details or travel documents you need for your cruise.
The second version is a slimmed down copy, which comes as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. This is text only and contains the essential items that you need for travel, so that if you want to have a paper ticket to travel, this is the version you can ask your travel agent to print for you or you can obtain it from our website yourself, following the instructions as below.
We now include bag tags within your cruise tickets (e-docs) for all Royal Caribbean sailings. This means that every guest will be able to get their bag tags, either from their travel agent or directly from the website. You will still be able to obtain blank bag tags at your port of embarkation should you prefer.
Your cruise tickets can be released anything from 50 days prior to your sail date, but it can depend on all parts of the booking being correct, and if not then they may not release until nearer the cruise. When they are released, we inform your travel agent of this and they can then provide you with them. If you have made your booking directly with us, when the tickets release we will inform you of this by email and at this point you can access both versions of the tickets on this website at www.royalcaribbean.co.uk/edocs
This is why it is important that we obtain your email address, so we can inform you that your tickets are ready. The easiest way to do this is to complete the online check-in, where you can provide your details. You can fill in as much information here as possible as soon as you make a booking, and any specific details you don’t have can be completed nearer the sail date. Click here to access our Online Check-In.
To log in to your booking you will need the following:
- Your cruise reservation ID, which can be found on your invoice
- Your ship name
- Your sail date, this is the date that you board the ship
- The surname of the first passenger listed on the booking
Once your online check-in has been completed and you’re within 30 days of sailing, you will be able to print off your SetSail pass which will need to be signed and taken with you on day of embarkation. This will help speed up your check-in experience at the port.
