Hi ncarrie, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!
For check in you can expect to be asked for your Funpass and ID before entering the terminal. You will also go through a security screening. There is usually a line if you get there early. Then you'll wait in another line to get to the check in desk. Have your FunPass, ID (driver's license and original or certified birth certificate, or pass port), credit card or other method of on board account payment ready. They will check you in and issue your Sail & Sign card. This will be used for all on board purchases, as well as your cabin key.
Now you'll be directed to a waiting area to start boarding. When they start you'll have a bon voyage picture taken. The next point is inserting your Sail & Sign card into the security machine so they can take a picture of you to encode in the security system.
Then next step is the best, walking the gangway onto the ship. You'll be welcomed aboard and given a deck plan layout of the ship and be informed they are serving lunch on the Lido deck. The cabins are not usually ready until between 1 and 2 PM. Please reply back about your cruise.
Have a great time on my old friend the Carnival Glory, and welcome aboard Cruise-Chat!
