Create a Carnival Cruise Account

Each guest should create a Carnival Cruise account. This is YOUR portal to the fun! You will use this account to book shore excursions, order wifi, book spa treatments, add a drink package, and complete your online checkin. Click here to sign up for your account! Once you have signed up, you can add your cruise to to the trip using your booking number and ship date.

Shore Excursions:

We will have the opportunity to explore Nassau, Bahamas during this cruise. Carnival offers many fun activities that you can book through the cruise, called shore excursions. General Shore Excursion information is available in the Shore Excursions section of the website www.carnival.com.au/shore-excursions. You will be able to view prices of excursions through this site. It is highly recommended that you book a Carnival Shore Excursion. One of the many benefits of booking excursions through Carnival is a guarantee that the ship will remain in port until all guests are back onboard. Carnival will not be aware of shore excursions that are booked independently. Remember, the boat doesn’t leave you on the island, you CHOOSE TO STAY behind by not making it back by the designated time. They WILL leave you if you do not make it back on time and are not booked on one of their excursions.

Shore excursions DO sell out and are first come first serve.  Another positive to book with Carnival, orders can be added or cancelled without cancellation charges, up until the Pre-Sail cut-off time. Check out the guidelines for more information. 

If you have questions about shore excursions, please reach out to Dr. Candice and she can assist.

Onboard Fun:

While onboard you can enjoy all of the included fun onboard. This includes music entertainment, comedy shows, dancing, karaoke, game shows, pools, waterslides, dive-in movie, and more! You can research the fun onboard the Carnival Conquest by clicking here and selecting the Carnival Conquest!

Onboard Pampering:

In addition to all of the free fun, you can also indulge a little and pamper yourself at Spa Carnival. Dr. Candice can help you reserve your treatment before we even sail! The salon is also available for all of your hair and needs! Check out the services they have at https://www.carnival.com/onboard/spa-carnival.  You can schedule your spa appointment from your Carnival account.

Onboard Beverage Plans:

While there are plenty of things to drink onboard, alcohol and soda are not included. You can purchase the Cheers! Beverage plan that allows guests to enjoy a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages by paying a flat daily rate $54.95 USD, per person, per day plus 18% gratuity. If alcohol isn’t your thin, the Carnival’s Bottomless Bubbles™ unlimited soda program could be for you! For $8.50 per day plus 18% gratuity you can enjoy the ease and convenience of paying one flat price for thirst-quenching fountain soda and juice all cruise long!  Both of these services are cheaper if added BEFORE You sail and can be added from your account.

Wifi is also available for an additional cost. This is a great way to stay connected to home. Prices vary pending the type of wifi you want. Plans range from basic social media to full wifi service. It is cheaper to purchase a plan in advance of sailing. This again, can be booked from your account.   https://www.carnival.com/~/media/Images/explore/fun-activities/menus/wifi-packages.pdf

To Do: Online Check-in

Online Check-in can be accessed within 90 days of the departure and no later than midnight (eastern time) prior to the sailing date.

You must complete the Online Check-in prior to sailing. You can do this by clicking Manage My Booking on Carnival’s site by visiting www.carnival.com/onlinecheckin and creating an account.

You will enter the booking number listed on your initial confirmation from Carnival. If you no longer have it, please reach out to Dr. Candice and she can provide it to you. In addition to the booking number, you will need the ship name (Conquest) and sail date (January 15). You will see a to-do list of things to complete and print out before you arrive at the port. You will also select your boarding time appointment during the check-in process. It is critical to arrive at the port at your Arrival Appointment time to reduce your wait in line. If you need help, Dr. Candice is here to walk you through it!

Luggage Tags:

Your Carnival Cruise Lines luggage tags will be included with your eTicket that is provided during the online check-in process. Please ensure one tag is printed, filled in and attached to each piece of luggage prior to arriving at the terminal on the day of departure. These tags will enable delivery of your luggage to your stateroom. It is key to print these in ADVANCE of leaving home. You should attach this just prior to arriving at the port, you DO NOT want to attach this before your flight, as the airline will rip it off. When you arrive at the port, the porter will collect your luggage. It is customary to tip the porter for taking your luggage.
