Sea Pass Card distribution on Adventure?

Recommended Posts

For anyone recently sailing on Adventure of the Seas, at what point in the boarding process did you get your sea pass card?  Some posts lately have mentioned getting the card once you reach your stateroom after 1 pm.  I don't remember seeing that for the Adventure any info would be appreciated.

From what port are you sailing?  The process can differ port to port.

I believe that is the case now from PE (and was true from Cape Liberty) - @John&LaLa can confirm.

We are on Adventure in March out of Ft. Lauderdale and we would also like to know.  Our boarding pass says in the room.

We were on Adventure for 2 weeks in December and the cards are located by the cabin doors.

Yep, in October the cards were at the cabin door.

I first saw the room distribution of cards on Adventure in Oct of 2018. 

 

I believe it's the the ship that determines it, not the port.  Once the ship has the equipment to print cards in bulk and they convert the onboard systems it then uses the new process.

Cape Liberty has been putting cards at the room since the new terminal was built and Anthem came there.  So, port does play a part in it.  CL isn't set up like most terminals.

RFID ships started doing ship card distribution first.  

 

When a ship can't support card distribution the cards are overnighted from Miami.  They are printed 4 days before the cruise.  It's a huge PITA.  Terminals only have contractors, no Royal employees.  It's the ship that determines if cards will be distributed on board.  Just wait for some older ships to arrive in Bayonne soon.

The terminal only has a few desks.  Check in is done mostly by ipad.  Older ships have already gone out of CL-Adventure being one of them.

As I said, Adventure began ship card distribution in 2018 - in Quebec City.

 

Empress has not - yet.  

 

Port Everglades - Majesty still has cards given out in the terminal, even terminal 18.  The terminal doesn't decide it.

On our Snowbird Migration cruise in October out of Quebec they were at the cabin. I think one was by the door and they other inside. IIRC

Yes they are outside by the door to the cabin.  Your setsail pass can be used to by drinks until you can get to your cabin after 1pm.

Actually it is determined by the check in system on the ship.  There are currently 3 different ones for both Royal and Celebrity.  Majesty should transition to their new system on the way to New Orleans but most likely will still distribute sea pass cards in the terminal for awhile.

We were on Adventure  in  Nov and on her again  Sat.  Cards in envelope on outside  door . Bad thing  could not get in Diamond lounge to wait around  before cabin opening at 130.  Had back to backers with card got in so we followed..  Cabin a few doors down from us people went to their cabin around 200pm and someone else  had already got card outside opened door and made themselves comfortable by mistake.
