Online Check-In

Have your reservation number? (Hint: We sent it to you in an email). Head to the NCL website to complete your online check-in.

The check-in time is when you should arrive to the Port of New Orleans. It is very important that everyone arrives at their selected time (not earlier). In an attempt to avoid long lines or wait-times outside the terminal, we ask all guests to abide by their self-selected port check in time.

Treat yourself! Schedule a treatment at the Mandara Spa. Whether you visit for a little relaxation or to get primped for your photo with KISS, we've got you covered!

Looking for some adventure? Book a shore excursion in Cozumel or Costa Maya!

Hungry? Check out your dining options. Specialty restaurants are noted with a * on the page and a reservation is recommended.
