TICKETING/BOARDING PROCEDURES. Discovery Cruises offers ticketless boarding.

Please print a copy of your boarding pass and bring this information with you or have the boarding pass available on your phone as it will be required for boarding the vessel. When you arrive at our facility for your scheduled cruise your party will proceed directly to the vessel for check in/boarding. Boarding will begin approximately 15-30 minutes prior to scheduled departure time. Please plan on arriving no later than 30 minutes prior to your cruise.

Discovery Cruises reserves the right to cancel, reschedule or change the time of any cruise at anytime. All cruises are weather permitting. All prices, entertainment, menus, times and schedules are subject to change without notice.
