We were upgraded to an 11 on Pride. We went into the skippers club room and got to sit in comfy chairs while the nice lady checked us in - then we were sent to wait for boarding in line with everyone else. Maybe some ports do it differently? I thought we got to wait in the Skippers Club for priority boarding but that didnt happen.
Other than the convenient checking in we didnt get treated any differently. We had a great cabin steward and guessed that they probably give the suites to the best stewards. And the case of water that I checked in with our luggage made it to our cabin without being confiscated - I wondered if it was because of the suite or not. And we werent told to wait until 12:30 to go to our cabins - but everyone in the lower categories WAS told to wait.
