Pre-cruise checklist

Any time after booking:

From 21 days prior to embarkation:

  • Plan your travel to your ship’s terminal to arrive at the time specified on your boarding pass.
  • Complete online check-in via My Cunard on our website and print your boarding pass and luggage labels.


If you are due to embark at a port outside of the UK, it’s your responsibility to meet all entry requirements for that country at the time of sailing. Cunard cannot accept responsibility if you’re denied entry to a country because you don’t meet the entry requirements.

Going on shore

Destinations on your itinerary may still have various Covid-19 requirements, such as specific documentation, testing or Shore Experience requirements.

Our regularly-updated destination entry requirements guide details the current requirements of each of the destinations we visit, so you know exactly what you need for each port of call.
