MIAMI — Following a successful pilot program, Carnival Cruise Line has officially launched VeriFLY, a secure and free digital health app that allows vaccinated guests to easily submit pre-embarkation information.
Carnival has launched the app fleetwide for all ships in all of its U.S. homeports, making it the largest cruise line to utilize VeriFLY.
Available in the App Store or Google Play, the app essentially cuts the time it takes to complete the health assessment process during embarkation in half. Once guests download VeriFLY, they can search for Carnival Cruise Line and complete the required steps, including submitting required documentation and including vaccination status and COVID-19 test results. When the process is successfully completed, a VeriFLY pass will be issued in the app to present at embarkation.
“VeriFLY helps our guests easily and securely complete pre-embarkation tasks right from their smartphone. Guests can save time at the port and get onboard faster by completing the process via VeriFLY,” said Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy.
In the pilot program’s first test in January 2022, ahead of a cruise on Mardi Gras from Port Canaveral, more than 85% of the 2,000 guests who opened an email invitation followed through by downloading the VeriFLY app.
Guests who choose not to complete the VeriFLY process are still able to complete their pre-cruise tasks on Carnival.com and present required COVID-19 documents during their embarkation.
