Carnival becomes the largest cruise line to use Daon VeriFLY digital health wallet for its operations from U.S. homeports

Daon, the creators of the world’s first widely adopted digital health wallet, VeriFLY, to help travelers and event attendees quickly and safely meet their destination’s COVID-19 requirements, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Carnival Cruise Line. Carnival has launched a pilot program for guests boarding the ship, Mardi Gras, at Port Canaveral, Florida.

Carnival guests can now upload their proof of vaccination and testing information so that it can be verified in advance of sailing – resulting in a streamlined health screening process, and ultimately a quicker embarkation experience at the terminal. Once the pilot at Port Canaveral is complete, Carnival intends to move quickly to implement VeriFLY across its fleet.

“We are committed to using technology to enhance the guest experience and are very pleased with the initial results from the VeriFLY pilot,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  “The faster we can make the terminal check-in process, the faster our guests can get to the fun on board.”

How do Travelers use VeriFLY? After creating a secure profile on your mobile device, the VeriFLY app will prompt you to confirm the details of your trip, including a) flight information, and b) a vaccine health credential and/or negative COVID-19 test that fulfills your travel destination’s requirements. As you verify each required element for travel, the app verifies that your test matches your destination’s requirements and displays a simple pass or fail message. A traveler will thus have confidence that they meet the destination’s COVID-19 requirements before they start their travel journey. This simple message will also help streamline the check-in and documentation verification process at the airport before your departure. The message also provides you with reminders when your travel window is coming to a close or once your credential has expired.

“Carnival has long been recognized as a leader in leisure travel, providing their guests with an outstanding vacation experience,” said Daon CEO Tom Grissen. “Daon is pleased to be able to assist Carnival with our VeriFLY digital wallet so that they can continue to provide a seamless travel journey for their guests.”
