Funny how people can view the same trip so differently. I was very disappointed with my one Carnival cruise and probably won't go back. I have not had a bad trip on RCI though.

I have waited in line before and have also breezed through with no wait. I was once the FIRST person onboard the Enchantment in Ft Lauderdale after waitin 15 minutes in the Platinum and Diamond line. Arrived at the port before 11 Am and was having a beer at the pool bar by 11:20. I was also once the LAST person onboard. It was our honeymoon and after a wild wedding night, drove from ST Pete to Miami in my VW BUS. Had to stop a few times to put oil in it. Arrived after 4:30 to the Song of America and the people said, "You must be the Bamford's" I said, "Yes, how did you know?" They said, "because you are the only ones not onboard yet."

Overall a much nicer environment, service, food and most importantly POOL AREA on RCI.
