    We are booked on back to back cruises. The first is the 7 Night British Isles (09/11/2021) followed by the West Bound Transatlantic (09/18/2021). How does the check-in process work between cruises? We are fortunate to have the same cabin for both. Thanks.

    Ahoy Ralph!

    So happy to have you onboard here at planDisney! How marvelous that you will be sailing not just once but twice with Captain Mickey! And to boot, what awesome itineraries you have with the British Isles from Dover, England followed by a Transatlantic journey. Start in England and end in New York? Yes, please!

    The check-in process for your back to back cruises is a seamless process. All of the details will be spelled out in instructions that your stateroom attendant will leave in your stateroom the night before your first debarkation day. You can also check at the Guest Services Desk on Deck 3, Midship for specific instructions. Keep a bag with you that contains your travel documents and Key to the World cards. All those will be needed because you’ll have to clear customs in between voyages. 

    Good news! You can count on being some of the first Guests to get back on the ship once it is cleared for your second itinerary! I’ve never had the good fortune of experiencing back to back cruises, but one benefit I’ve been told is how much fun it is to wander around the ship before any of the new Guests arrive for embarkation. It’s a perfect time to take photos while few people are onboard and to just relax and enjoy the relatively uncrowded ship. 

    Smart move to already have reserved the same stateroom for both cruises! The big bonus to this: you don’t have to pack between voyages and everything stays in your stateroom on your transition day. I always say unpacking once is one of the major reasons why I adore cruising...and you can say this for not one but TWO sailings! 
    FYI: With ports of call in both Ireland and the United Kingdom, your British Isles sailing may mean that multiple-entry visas for Ireland or the United Kingdom are necessary. Similarly, Guests traveling on a Transatlantic cruise must always determine if they need to obtain multiple-entry travel visas for Europe and/or the United States based on their nationality. Just making sure that you have everything necessary to make that check-in process an absolute breeze!

    Ralph, I cannot wait for you to experience your back to back adventure at sea! For more planning tips, fly back to planDisney anytime. 

    SEA ya real soon!
