Registering With Carnival: Once you have reserved a cabin you need to go on-line an register with Carnival and print out your boarding pass(es) and baggage tags. To do so, go to https://www.carnival.com/. When you get to the site, click on "Manage". Make sure you bring your boarding pass(es) with you when your board along with your passport, or birth certificate & official photo ID (drivers license or state ID).

Pre-Check In For the Hash Cruise: Come by the hash hotel, room TBD, between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM, on Sat, Jan 27th to do a pre-check in for the hash cruise, reserve a seat on the hotel to ship shuttle and get your Pirate Invasion Booty (goody bag). Please don't make us carry you stuff aboard ship.

Hash Hotel: The Hash Hotel is the ESJ Azul Hotel, 6165 Isla Verde Ave Carolina, PR 00979-5729, https://goo.gl/maps/rDtUGcZ2R7q, on Isla Verdi Beach. Rooms are $144 a night, plus a $28 vacationer fee and 9% tax, for a single or a double room (about $190 a night total), which includes breakfast. Our rates are good for 2 day prior and 2 days after the cruise. To reserve a room, call 1-800-468-2026 and tell them you are with the Jolly Roger H3 group. Otherwise you will not get our group rates, which is a significant discount from the regular cost. The hotel is right next to the San Juan International Airport (Aeropuerto Internacional Luis Muñoz Marín), so its just a short taxi ride to get there.

Transportation from Hash Hotel To Ship: Right now we do not have any kind of a shuttle service that runs from the hash hotel to the port, so be prepared to take about a 15 minute taxi ride to get there. The goes with transportation from the ship back to the hash hotel and/or airport.

Alcoholic Beverages Aboard Ship: In the past, most hashers BYOB on board even though its contrary to the Carnival's policy, as its not all that well enforced, although they are starting to crack down more lately. You just can't be too obvious, or put all your eggs in one basket. Officially though, we cannot give you permission or recommend you do this. Unofficially, its a heck of a good idea if you can get away with it (as most people do). Its not against the law, its just against the cruise lines rules as they want you to buy their booze. However, if they find your unauthorized alcohol they will confiscate it and you WILL NO LONGER get it back. So do as you will. Contact me personally for more info or advise, if needed. Once you have registered with Carnival we highly suggest you look into buying packaged liquor at Carnival's Fun Shops. If you purchase from liquor from Carnival's "Fun Shops - In State Room Beverages" your packaged liquor will be delivered directly to your room an will be waiting for you when you board the ship on the first day. Its a lot more expensive than you get it for at off ship liquor store ($85 per liter is the cheapest), but its a lot cheaper than paying on-board-ship bar prices and even cheaper than the all inclusive liquor packages Carnival offers. The best part about having packaged liquor delivered to your cabin is that not everyone in your cabin has to make a purchase. If one person in a cabin gets the all inclusive liquor package, all members in the cabin must purchase it. But this is not the case with In State Room Beverage purchases.
