Celebrity Cruise Helpful Information

Now that you have booked your Celebrity Cruise, you may have a few questions about your holiday before you board. We have put together a collection of commonly asked questions to help make your cruising experience hassle free. 

Once your booking has been confirmed, please register yourself with Celebrity. You will need your name and cruise reference to set up an account.

To manage your Celebrity Cruise booking, log on via the website or app. Your cruise personaliser allows you to streamline your cruise experience, view your itinerary and provide access to book shore excursions, as well as a variety of onboard services and activities. It is highly recommended to book any tours directly through your cruise line. This ensures that you are not left behind. Checking your cruise personaliser regularly will allow you to take advantage of the numerous discounts made available pre-departure to secure the best deals, and give you a chance to familiarise yourself with the ship and its experiences.


Celebrity Cruise - Manage My Booking

  • Ensure your details are up to date by logging into your cruise personaliser.
  • Complete your online check-in and make note of your allocated embarkation time.
  • Print boarding passes and luggage tags (we recommend also downloading a copy of your boarding pass to your smartphone).
  • Ensure you have comprehensive travel insurance in place with Cruise Cover, as well as proof of policy.
  • Brush up on your destination requirements which include ESTA (Visa waiver - required for entry to the USA), and ETA (Visa waiver - required for entry to Canada). ** Please see our dedicated Passports, Visa's and FCO advice page for further detail**
  • Pre-book your at-sea specialty dining, spa services, activities, and shore excursions.
  • Most cruise lines feature optional formal evenings, participation is voluntary, so bring whatever makes you comfortable - be that a ball gown or Hawaiian shirt and flip flops.
  • Download the Celebrity Cruises App to your smartphone.


Please Note: As you have booked with a travel agent, your confirmed inclusions such as a drinks package, Wi-Fi, gratuities, etc. may not all be listed on the Celebrity app/website. Please refer to your My Canada Trips correspondence for confirmation of all inclusions. If you have any queries, please contact us.

How to Book Shore Excursions

There is so much to see while on your Celebrity Cruise, why not book a shore excursion to enhance your cruise? 

Excursions can be booked through the Celebrity Cruises App. We recomend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. 

For a step by step guide on how book through the app, please watch the short video guide here.

We highly recommend booking your shore excursions well in advance to avoid any disappointment as popular excursions for example many of wildlife excursions get booked up quickly. 

Documents You Will Need

**Please note that the above documentation is mandatory for all guests. You will be refused boarding if you do not have the required documents.**


Online Check In

It is recommended that you complete your online check in at least 3 days prior to departure. This may be done through Celebrity - Manage My Booking. Please make a note of your allocated embarkation time, as guest arrivals are staggered to ensure a smooth check in process with minimal waiting times. It is the guests own responsibility to arrive on time for boarding, and while it is highly recommended to ensure you are ready to board during your embarkation slot, those who fail to be on board at least 60 minutes prior to departure will be denied boarding.


Luggage Tags

Your luggage tags will generate 3 to 4 weeks prior to departure and will be available on your Cruise Personaliser. Please ensure that you have them printed and securely attached to your luggage prior to embarkation. Upon check-in, for your convenience your bags will be transferred to your cabin.
