Set Sail Pass -- how many copies do I need?

Even when we've sailed on Harmony where we had to get our sea passes in the cabin we have never printed out more than 1 set sail pass ahead of time.  It makes sense that each person might need their own to make purchases before their cabin is ready but I'm quite sure that we've never had more than just 1 since I'm the one who always prints them out.  I can't think of why we were able to get by with just the one.  Maybe it's b/c we've always been in Star Class on Harmony and we go directly to our room and get our sea passes immediately.  I'm not sure.  I always just print out Dan's since his is the one that has all of the credit card information on it.

Bottom line - even if you don't print out ANY set sail passes ahead of time you can still get on the ship eventually.  They will help you get whatever you need.  The only thing that can prevent you from getting on the ship is lack of proper documentation or illness.  Maybe an outstanding warrant for your arrest or if you're on the DHS bad boy list.  :15_yum:

Did you get a Genie escort onto the ship?  I know in Sky class my son and I had individual set sail passes on Harmony in September.  Upon boarding they scanned both which I presumed they did to know both souls were on on board. 

I don't doubt what you say, just curious how they recorded your presence on the ship which is far more important than charging things.

As you can see there is only one box near my name to print.  there is not another box next to BRAD'S name.

So how do we print out one for him?

There remains a couple different versions of SetSail passes.  Your's appears to be the traditional style.  Notice how his name is under your name by the Print button?  That ships hasn't converted to the new process yet.  Single SetSail should suffice unless you plan to arrive at the cruise terminal separately.

One time when cruising with my son and we had planned to arrive separately I logged in under his name and was able to print a unique SetSail pass for him.  

If in doubt just bring a copy of the cruise invoice showing both names.

Some people arrive at the terminal with no paperwork.  As long as they checked in online that still works.

Newbie here - we are completing our online check in, so we can print all docs.  This thread caught my eye.

Weird question - why are they asking for a photo of each of us in this online section

Is that so crew and others can verify it's us on the ship?  Someone mentioned they take pics of us on day 1 for documentation.  If that's the case, do I need to add a pic before completing the doc section or will they do it anyway upon embarkation?

Whew - getting excited and the countdown is on to Alaska!

Thanks in advance for any info about this!

Yes, the photo is used to identify you on the ship.  If you upload a photo and it is acceptible they won't take another one when you get on the ship.  May save a few minutes at check-in.  You also could be eligible for expedited boarding if you upload a photo which means you won't even have to check in at all.

I've already checked in for ourAlaska Southbound on Radiance that leaves in a little over a week. It didn't prompt us to upload a picture. Is this just on the newer ships?

Could be.  I can tell you we sailed the Harmony in May and will do so again in September, and each time there was a prompt for the photo, which we ignore.

In 2018 for the Radiance in Australia, no photo prompt.

My understanding from this thread and others I posted at the time is that older ships use a different checkin process, where the entire party is on one Set Sail pass and I think goes through a different system on their IT side; as such, you can't upload photos (which are keyed to individual passes on those newer ships).

Hmmm. Gets more strange, then. Each person in our travel party has their own set sail pass. Printed it out, already.

We are sailing on Ovation this month - could be just the newer ships' systems.  Seems odd that they have different online check-in processes/options though - one would think it would be easier to streamline all of that for consistency.

Enjoy your Alaska southbound!  If we like our Inside Passage trip, heading farther north in Alaska will definitely be next on our list.

If your ship is one of ships supported by the RC app, it is not necessary to print out set sail passes.  They can be scanned directly from your phone when you are at the port. Current supported ships Adventure, Allure, Brilliance, Enchantment, Harmony, Independence, Liberty, Majesty, Mariner, Navigator, Oasis, Quantum, Serenade, Spectrum, Symphony and Vision
