To expedite the embarkation process,  Carnival has recently instituted staggered check-in times for all their ships at 8 embarkation ports and will add three more ports in Oct-Nov.  Passengers sailing on ships leaving from these ports will need to pre-select online check-in times for their arrival at the terminals.  They will have a one-hour window to arrive at the terminal.  Passengers will not be permitted to enter terminal ahead of this window.  Certain categories of passengers are exempt from the one-hour window but still must choose an online time of arrival at the terminal.  These include Priority Program guests, those with ship-sponsored airport transfers & those utilizing Faster To The Fun.  Do you think that this is a good or bad thing?  Here's a link to answers you may have about the new procedure.
