In the document field, click on the drop-down arrow and select ID Card and then fill in your ID number to the right (if it is not filled in already).

Note: the details on your travel documents have to be identical to the details on your identity documents (name, surname, date of birth and identity documents number) that you will use on the embarkation day.

Drop the zero at the front of the number - eg: 831234567 or 119876543. Don’t insert any spaces or hyphens in the number.

If you wish to use the same emergency contact for all the people travelling on this booking number, select the orange tick box to use the same data for all passengers.

 Next, you will need to complete your home address details:

 Adress information

If you wish to copy information from another passenger whose details have already been entered, select their name from the "Same Address Information as" field.

Else enter your postcode in the Postcode field and click on FIND. This should populate the City, Region and Country fields. (you might have to click FIND a couple of times in order to unlock the city dropdown menu)

If the city is not correct, click on the drop-down arrow and choose the correct one from those available. Then type your address (street name and number, apartment name and number, etc) into the address field.

Lastly, on this page, there are three tick boxes to select:

Privacy policy

In the above, the " I have read the Privacy policy" is mandatory. The communication to third parties & the personalised offers and news are not.

Do select yes if these options are suited to you.

Finally, click the orange “NEXT” button at the bottom of the page.

You should then be able to select the next passenger to be checked in and repeat the process.

 

When your booking is complete you will get a green tick next to each name:

Green ticks mean it is ready for the e ticket that you will get either directly or through your travel agency. - And this is all for the www.msccruises.com check in

When you have a green tick next to each name, your web check-in is done and you are ready to receive your e-ticket.

Those e-tickets will be sent to you, either by the cruise line or by the Hupla support team about 2 to 3 weeks before the embarkation day.

If at the end of the web check-in, you get an error message that you have not completed all the steps, but you have the green ticks next to your name, don't worry, it is all in order.

We will reach out to you if we find any issues with your profile.
