Check-in times

You must check in at the harbour at least 15 minutes before the ferry’s scheduled departure time.

In Rostock, however, buses, cyclists and foot passengers must check in at least 30 minutes before the ferry’s scheduled departure time.

If you miss the check-in deadline, you are of course welcome to board the next available ferry, provided that your ticket is valid for departures other than the one you’ve booked.
