A faster embarkation process is rolling out to more Carnival cruise ships.

Carnival Cruise Line is rolling out a faster embarkation process to three more ships. The process speeds up the usually hectic process by making the cabin key available outside each stateroom on embarkation day. The key is in a sealed envelope and when the stewards have completedĀ getting the room ready guests can then collect their key. This will speed up the process where passengers don’t have to wait in line.

John Heald posted on his popular Facebook page that three more Carnival cruise will benefit from the faster process. The new embarkation process will be on Carnival Freedom from July 22, Carnival Valor from July 29 and Carnival Breeze on July 30. At the moment there are five Carnival ships which already have the faster embarkation including Carnival Glory, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Victory, Carnival Vista and Carnival Splendor.

Many cruisers fear that by leaving the very important key cards outside the staterooms anyone can just pick it up and use it. The key cards are connected to the onboard Sail & Sign account and are used for onboard purchases and for getting on and off the vessel when in port.The faster embarkation process will no doubt end up across the fleet, we’ll keep Cruise Hive readers informed of any more updates.
