Default Early check in on the Queen Mary Long Beach

What is the deal with early check in for the Carnival Pride on the Queen Mary? Do I show up at the Queen Mary or Carnival dock? What time can I board?

Not sure if they are even doing it any more. Last year we went down to a desk in the hotel and registered and dropped off our bags. Once we got back outside we had to line up anyway to get on board - so not sure how much time it actually saved.

We got in line outside at about 11 a.m. and it took about an hour or so to get on. There was a separate line for those who had pre-registered at the hotel but I think almost everyone did that so the line was pretty long.

I might have to call Carnival and the Queen Mary and ask questions. Did the people who didn't pre board have to slup their bags along with them or did they have porters pick them up?

The bags get dropped off with the porters inside the car parkade.

It's not a bad place to stand in line actually. There are shops all around and we just took turns - one of us in line and the other shopping. Ok - maybe "taking turns" is not exactly right lol. Dh stood in line - I shopped
- just the natual progression of things tee-hee.

Men don't shop they only buy when they need something. So yes it's natural for them to wait while we shop!
