Default Do You Find Filing The Immigration Form Online

To All On Board,

Can anyone tell me if you have ever filed your Immigration Form Online and did it make a difference when you arrived on the pier at your check in?

We filed our Immigration Forms last year online and found that we stood on the same line as everyone on the pier in NYC and couldn't tell the difference if we would have filled it out and brought it to the check-in desk that day.

Your remarks............

Regards,

Last few cruises - Christmas and Feb. - they had different lines for those who had filled out their forms on line and it was so fast and easy for those of us who did so.

Hope they do this next month in NY.

I am booked on the Zuiderdam for the 5/1 sailing. When you fill out the form on line it tells you to print a copy and submit it with your signature during registration to get on the ship. Be sure that you check out of the site. It should say updated or something to that effect.

I filled it out online and printed it. There WERE two lines when checking in for the Zuiderdam (about noon), both about the same length. I got in the "regular old" line and handed the agent my forms. Both lines moved about the same pace. It took all of about 15 minutes to get thru the line and on the ship. Couldn't have been easier.

We have always filled out the form on line but have always printed a copy, signed it, and presented it at check in. I believe the only atvantage in doing this is that you save time not having to mess with filling out the form during check in process. The less you have to do at check in, the better.

Our TA filed ours for our cruise on the Zaandam Oct. 2003, and we simply were direccted right up to the counter and got our room cards, information and walked onto the ship and in probably less than 20 minutes we were having lunch on the Lido deck.
