We are part of the Crown and Anchor and have different lines for the levels... but do the online check in too... Between those two things, it runs smooth

we are Platinum on Carnival and the priority check in is a great perk for doing all cruises on Carnival

After work today and comparing the Lines for the crown and anchor levels compared to everyone else.... It pays off to joining the reward program no matter what... Now carnival I know there is Faster to the Fun that you pay for and there is other priorities (which I'm not positive on how they get it, but i'm assuming its a level thing too.

FTF is sold as a shore excursion and costs about sixty bucks per cabin. It gives priority check in, priority boarding after suite and elites, priority line for customer service, and your cabin is ready when you board.

We, unfortunately, get boarded earlier due to disability. I do not recommend anyone else going about priority boarding this way :(

The sooner you can get on the ship, the sooner you can start enjoying your cruise! See you on the Lido Deck! Big Smile

I've not experience any real delays on boarding when we went on our cruises. Maybe we were unaware that things could be different. Being Canadian, we are used to being patient and waiting in lines so that does not really bother me and Monique. However.. Getting off the Dawn in Boston...what a pain......Wink

I get priority boarding on RCI and Celebrity due to loyalty club membership levels and it is nice to have shorter lines. On carnival I'm only Gold level and I am thinking of paying for the "Faster to the Fun" pass on my next Carnival Cruise. Loyalty has it's perks.

Now now, johngold- no complaining about debarkation either- you're Canadian. (Me too) LOL

I know, I know, I'm sorry. I'm sorry-----Is that Canadian enough?
