Default Back 2 Back Cruise Question

I'm considering adding another cruise onto one I've already booked. How to the cruiselines handle back2back, same ship cruises? Do I have to leave the ship while everyone else disembarks? Can I stay in my stateroom? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I believe you will have to leave your cabin and possibly the ship. On our last cruise on RCL, those folks had to get off and go to the terminal. They were able to wait in a separate room until they were permitted to get back on the ship.

Hi seattleguy,

We haven't done a B2B yet (next year !), but from what I've read you'll be asked to meet in one of the lounges, escorted off the ship by a crew member, get a new cruise card and then be allowed to reboard.

Sounds easy to me!

Have a wonderful cruise!

We did a back to back on the Triumph in 2002. We booked the same cabin on both sailings, so we didn't have to pack up and move. We were told to go to a specific area of the lobby and wait until they were ready to recheck us in at the Purser's desk. That whole process took about a half hour. I have not done a B2B since then and not sure if the policy has changed.
