when we will get our cabin assignments and boarding passes?
They've been getter better at assigning guaranteed category cabins. It used to be you didn't know until you got to the pier. You need to complete check-in for your cruise at the Carnival website. Once done, you will then print your FunPass which is your "boarding pass". All you will need to have with you when you arrive at the pier is your FunPass, your approved ID (passport or photo ID and certified birth certificate), and whatever you will be using to secure your shipboard account (credit or debit card, cash deposit).
