The 4 Seasons Party Cruise embarks from the Port of Miami.

We offer incentives for groups booking ten (10) or more cabins on the 4 Seasons Party Cruise. For more info, please visit our Groups page.

Yes. Children are welcome. The Four Seasons Party Cruise is Family-friendly. The ship will have all the same accommodations as a regular Carnival sailing including Camp Carnival for kids.

An interior cabin is one of the less expensive cabins. It has all the comforts of an outside cabin with the exception of a view.

Porthole cabins not available this sailing.

An ocean view cabin is the same size as an interior cabin. The ocean view cabins have a large square picture window that gives you excellent views of the ocean and each destination. Just imagine waking up each morning to a fantastic view of the ocean . You can take in all the sites as you cruise the ocean …all from the comfort of your room.

These cabins not available this sailing.

Balcony cabins have floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, two twin beds that convert to a queen-sized bed, ample closet and storage space, private bathroom with shower, and a living area with vanity and seating. Staterooms are equipped with thermostat controlled air-conditioning, television, telephone, and personal safe. You can relax on your private balcony and enjoy the invigorating sea breeze as you sail along the ocean, sipping on your favorite cocktail.

These cabins not available this sailing.

Cabins are sold as double-occupancy, even if only one person occupies the cabin. Thus, solo travelers must pay twice the double-occupancy rate less certain taxes and fees.

A referral service is available for solo travelers seeking a cabin-mate. Please inquire about this when making your reservation. Note: This is a referral service only. Guests are still responsible for selecting their own cabin-mates. For parties sharing a cabin and paying separately, all parties must be paid in full before any other party is allowed to check in for the cruise. If all rooming parties are not paid in full by the final payment due date, the cabin will be canceled in accordance with our policy.

There are a limited number of triple and quad-occupancy cabins on the ship. For these cabins, the first two guests are each charged the full double-occupancy price. Additional guests in the same cabin are each charged $100 less than double-occupancy price.

It is rare for a cruise cancellation to occur due to an impending hurricane. Typically, an itinerary deviation is implemented to avoid a storm.

Most passengers do not experience motion sickness while sailing on large cruise ships. For those guests who are prone to motion sickness, you can purchase Meclizine (Bonine), or Dramamine prior to sailing. If you are concerned about motion sickness, please consult your doctor prior to the cruise for prescription motion sickness patches or wristbands, as the ship does not carry these items.

No. All passenger cabins on all decks are well above sea level.

If the beds are not converted upon boarding, please simply inform your room steward of your preferences and they will ensure they are joined together during turn down service that evening.

In addition to its dry-cleaning and laundry service, the ship also has self-service launderettes with washers, dryers, irons, and ironing boards. A nominal fee per load is charged for use of the washers and dryers.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTATION – ALL PORTS
Proper travel documentation is required at embarkation and throughout the cruise. Even though a guest has completed registration using FUNPASS, it is still the responsibility of the guest to bring all required travel documents. Any guest without proper documents will not be allowed to board the vessel and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued. Carnival assumes no responsibility for advising guests of proper travel documentation.

CRUISE TRAVEL
U.S. Citizens
Carnival highly recommends all guests travel with a passport (valid for at least six months beyond completion of travel). Although a passport is not required for U.S. citizens taking cruises that begin & end in the same U.S. port, travelling with a passport enhances your disembarkation experience, as delays may be expected upon your return to the U.S. if you do not have one. Additionally, passports make it easier for you to fly from the U.S. to a foreign port should you miss your scheduled port of embarkation, or need to fly back to the U.S. for emergency reasons.

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) allows U.S. citizens (including children) sailing on cruises that begin and end in the same U.S. port to travel with one of the following WHTI compliant document:
Valid U.S. Passport
Passport Card
Original Birth Certificate (Issued by the department of vital statistics)
Certificate of Naturalization
Enhanced Driver’s License (EDL)
Trusted Traveler Program Membership Card, e.g., Nexus Card, Sentri Card or Fast Card
A Consular Report of Birth Abroad
A valid government-issued photo ID is also required for all guests, including children 16 and over.

Important: Baptismal and Hospital Certificates, copies of U.S. Passports and Naturalization papers, are not WHTI compliant documents, therefore, NOT acceptable.

When traveling with a minor and both parents/legal guardians are not cruising, we strongly recommend bringing an original, signed letter from the absent parent/legal guardian authorizing the minor to travel with you. This will expedite processing by the Department of Homeland Security. Please note that a notarized letter to this effect is required if debarking with children in Mexico.

U.S. Alien Residents require a valid Alien Resident Card and/or passport (depending on itinerary) to travel on all Carnival cruises. Non-U.S. citizens require a valid machine readable passport and a valid, unexpired U.S. Multiple Re-entry Visa, if applicable, to travel on all Carnival cruises. Guests are advised to check with their appropriate government authority to determine the necessary documents.

On occasion, non-U.S. citizens and U.S. Alien Residents may be asked to surrender their passport and/or Alien Resident Card at time of embarkation. These documents will be returned upon completion of the Immigration inspection at the time of debarkation. Non-U.S. citizens that are eligible to apply for admission under the Visa Waiver Pilot Program, must still have a valid unexpired passport. U.S. State Department regulations require all guests traveling from visa-waiver countries be in possession of a machine-readable passport that includes a biometric identifier – e.g., embedded digital photograph. Otherwise, guests will be required to obtain a U.S. Multiple Re-entry Visa. Guests without proper identification may be refused boarding or entry into the United States.

Carnival requires guests to provide proper travel documentation in order to travel. The passport requirement does NOT apply to U.S. citizens traveling to or returning directly from a U.S. territory. Non-U.S Citizens must contact the appropriate Consulates, U.S. Embassy and U.S. Immigration office to inquire about necessary travel documentation. Carnival assumes no responsibility for advising guests of Immigration requirements.

It is recommended that all guests travel with a valid passport during their cruise. This will enable guests to fly from the U.S. to meet their ship at the first port should they miss their scheduled embarkation and allow guests that must disembark the ship before their cruise ends due to an emergency to fly back to the U.S without significant delays and complications. It is also recommended that all guests travel with a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond completion of travel

The ship leaves at approximately 4:00pm. You must be at the port no later than 2:30pm.

You should be at the port between 12pm and 2pm. 2:30 pm is the latest you should arrive to the port to ensure that you have time to get through embarkation process and security.

The ship arrives at 8am Thursday, November 6th

Miami – earliest return flight after 11:30 AM for Miami; 12:00 PM for Ft. Lauderdale

Government regulations for U.S. departure ports require that a final departure manifest is submitted 60 minutes prior to departure. Guests must provide us with the required information prior to embarkation. The easiest and most convenient way is to complete our FunPass on line registration process (www.carnival.com/mycruise) at least (3) three days prior to departure.

Guests that do not complete the registration process prior to embarkation are required to check-in at least 90 minutes prior to the published sailing time.

In addition, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will no longer be accepting oral declarations to satisfy the requirements for identity and citizenship documentation. Guests must present the proper travel documentation at embarkation. For complete information on the required travel documentation, please visit the U.S. Government website (www.travel.state.gov).

Embarkation Hours:
Miami – 12:30 P.M
Note: You must check in at least 1 1/2 hours prior to departure or risk cancellation of your reservation.

Embarkation Experience
Guests who arrive at the cruise terminal on their own (i.e. personal car, dropped off) – what to expect:

Cruise Terminal
Once you arrive at the port, you will go through Port Authority Security (usually a gate house) so please ensure you have readily available a picture I.D. and your cruise documents. You will then follow the signs to the terminal and continue on to the Baggage Drop-off area to hand your luggage to a porter. The porters will ensure your luggage is taken on board so that shipboard staff may deliver it to your stateroom. The customary tip for porter service is $1.00 per bag.

For guests who will park their car at the port, once you are at the Baggage Drop-off area, everyone aside from the driver may come inside the terminal while the driver continues to the parking area. At most of our ports, the walking distance between the parking area and terminal is a short one, making it an easy walk for the driver. Depending on the walking distance, some cruise terminals have a complimentary shuttle to and from the parking area/terminal.

Embarkation Process – what to expect:
Security Checkpoint
You will go through the x-ray security machines with your carry-on luggage. If your luggage exceeds 24″W x 16″H x 30″L, you must see a porter to have it checked in.

Check- in
From the security checkpoint, you will be directed to the check-in line. Once you reach our check-in agent, you will need to present your picture I.D. and proof of citizenship, as well as establish your Sail & Sign on board account. Once our check-in agent completes your registration, they will provide you with your Sail & Sign card.

Embarkation Souvenir Photo
Our ship’s photo staff will be in the terminal to capture your “Welcome Aboard” souvenir photo. This photo will be displayed on board at the Photo Gallery and available for purchase.

Yes, Carnival offers transportation services at most ports.

Once you arrive at the carousel area, you will need to identify and collect all of your luggage. Then, if we have enough guests for the motor coach to leave at full capacity, our Meet & Greet staff will escort you to the motor coach. If we need to wait for additional guests to arrive, you will be escorted to a waiting area with seats.

*Not all airport locations offer Meet & Greet staff. Please check your transfer voucher that is included in your E-Documents.
