Default Getting On The Ship Fast???

I was recently told that if you cruised before on Carnival, they have a special thing where you can get on the ship faster and not wait in line. Does this sound familar or to good to be true??? My whole family is going on the Conquest Nov. 30 to the Western Caribbean out of New Orleans where I heard it is hard getting on the ship..

What you heard is not true. The only people that get expedited check in are those in the skippers club, which are guests booked in cayagory 11 and 12 suites.

I didn't get onboard any faster then anybody else on Carnival. I don't think that is true and maybe just a rumor you heard.

The only time I have seen it is concerning special needs people in wheel chairs for example. My Mom is in a chair when she is outside of the house and both on the Sensation and Pride we were on ship very early on. More than likely to help speed things up as the chairs tend to take up space. lucky enough to have been the very first passengers on the Pride on her 3rd trip out of the Cape!

Same w/my husband and I when he is in his wheelchair...just make sure they don't bypass the photo op that shows the name of the ship and the date...that's always a nice one to have.
