Thank you everyone, you can't blame a girl for trying..
We were VIP the first cruise and it was great the line to registar was empty and we were like the 3 people on the ship... loved it.... the second cruise, we were not as early as before, so we had to wait in a long check in line... it was inside and hot and stuffy, blucko
once through it wasn't long at all after that.
Next cruise we will arrive earlier, if for no other reason for early check in. Then I don't care if we have to sit and wait for the line to go down...
