For Carnival, I think it's more the category of cabin you book -- suites and above get preferred check-in.

Thanks for the info. I couldn't find it on their web site. They just said VIP check in was available if you qualified.

I don't have a suite, just a balcony, so I guess we will stand in line.

You get VIP status on cruise number 10. They have not yet completely implemented it, not sure of which port/ships currently have it, but according to a CCL rep they hope to have it implemented fleet wide by the end of the second quarter of the year.

Getting onboard the Liberty sailing from Fort Lauderdale, our friends had the VIP embarkation, and indeed it goes from 10 cruises. It took them 12 minutes to get onboard and they had an inside cabin, so cabins has nothing to do with it.
Getting in line was not that bad either , we were onboard within the hour.

Last week was our second cruise and we had VIP boarding.Outstanding! They take you in a private office to take you credit card #and then they send you upstairs to get your S&S card. The length of time depends on how fast you can walk/run. This was because we had been upgraded to a suite.
