When I made our reservations, I was told that our suite qualified us for the "Skipper's Club". We expected, when we got our packet from Carnival, that there would be some list of benefits of the Skipper's Club, but, we got our ticket packet last week, and there isn't any information. Could anyone tell us what benefits there are to it?
So here's my dilemma. Our flight arrives at 1:56 PM and boarding starts at 1:30 for the cruise to leave at 4 PM. Since we are Skipper's Club, we won't be waiting in line but I'm still worried about getting there. It's an American flight, not a discount airline with plenty of flights in/out, but I'm wondering if I should try to come in a day early - just to be safe?
When you get to the pier, ask the CCL personnel to direct you to the skipper's club... it is a special area for your check-in so you do not have to wait in line. They will take you to a lounge area and you will get checked in there. You will then be escorted past the lines for your security picture, get your keys and on to the ship. It is very nice!
I don't know about flying in at 1:56 for a 4:00 departure. To me that would really be cutting it close and too nerve racking for me. All you would need is for one little thing to go wrong. Yep...way too stressful. Either way best of luck to you.
Thanks! I've been thinking the same thing. Guess I'll be coming in the night before (to Miami) and just hang out with the kids. I've seen the Hyatt Regency talked about - how is it? Do they have a shuttle from the airport and then onto the ship? Or do you have to take a cab?
We always fly in a day early, who needs the stress of delays either in flying or traffic to get to the ship? Not a good way to start a vacation! And it's always fun to visit a new city the evening before and think about sailing out the next day....
