A quick question for all you former Whale-Tailers out there:

I have a Carnival cruise scheduled for January 2018. When can I expect the FTTF to initially go on sale? (Please, let's not debate the worthiness or merit of FTTF here Sad)

Having a suite on the Empress deck is nice. It's the high dollar area. Keeps me distant from the peasants and commoners.Happy

You're not going to need FTTF if you're in a suite. You get everything except luggage.

Yep. I don't have a suite this upcoming cruise. Got an aft balcony.

I signed up for FTTF for my Carnival Inspiration cruise in about three weeks. Will be my first time using it. From what I've read and from talking to people first hand it sounds like a good deal.

The spirit of the program is great. However, Carnival's training for the crew is very lacking and Faster To The Fun has turned into Faster To The Front and in the process they've stepped on a lot of toes getting to the front.

I'll make sure to be very respectful of others.

I think they have improved the program since it first started, the crew seems to understand the it better and some of the folks using it also understand it better. We would have purchased it when it started, except we already had platinum status that had all the things we wanted; preferred boarding and debarkation and early luggage. After those things it is all "gravy". It doesn't matter what program is in place, there are people who push and shove their way to the front and are rude about it. Then there those so unassuming that you would never know they have "elite" status. it is nice that one can earn perks for being loyal to any brand or company, but sad when people demand them.

Sorry, off my soap box now.

People snap it up quickly. Keep checking, especially after the final payment date when they are likely to cancel.

Step up on it anytime. Wink

I am Platinum level so I don't need this. Good luck! Keep trying.
