When we were on Jewel of the Seas we looked across the street and saw the line trying to get on Carnival. It stretched as far as we could see and was virtually not moving. We had just dropped off our luggage and from the time we got in the long line to check in was ten minutes. It just seems like there is something very wrong in the procedure for embarking Carnival ships. We cruised Legend and Valor last year and we don't recall anything like this now.
