Notes on “Mein Schiff” online check-in

  • Online check-in can only be carried out once the ship’s manifest (contains your personal passport data) has been fully completed in the portal
  • In most cases, you can check in online from 21 days up to 24 hours (CET) before departure
  • In some cases, however, online check-in is only available at short notice and only until 5 p.m. at the start of the trip

Check-in time slots

There are fixed time slots for check-in for individual arrivals, which you should adhere to. You can select one of the predefined time slots in your “My Trip” portal. If you do not use this option, you will automatically be assigned a time slot immediately before the start of the trip.

The timing of the check-in is intended to limit the number of people at the port terminal as much as possible. Access to the port terminal is not permitted outside this period.

Guests arriving by bus or plane with the TUI Cruises travel package do not have a time slot. Likewise, there are no fixed check-in time slots for guests with suites, junior suites and VIP rates.

Check-in checklist

What documents and information do you need to prepare for online check-in?

  • The ship’s manifest must be completed in full on the portal at least 6 weeks before the start of the voyage
  • To log in to the “My Ship” portal, you will need your travel documents with the transaction number
  • Prepare your identification documents such as passport or ID card
  • Think about which payment method you would like to use for the on-board bill and prepare the necessary documents
