Yes, when I boarded the Carnival Liberty with my family, we proceeded to the left hand side of the check-in area where they were handling the VIP platinum status cruisers.The VIP check in area is placed near the escalator/elevators to go upstairs to board the ship. My next Carnival cruise will be my 10th cruise.

Kuki I have not sailed out of Ft Laud only Miami. If it is similiar, then I can tell you we had friends cruise with us. we went VIP they didnt. In the end they were 6 people behind us as we boarded the ship. prior to walking into the reception building we decided to see what the actual difference would be so we both went our way as fast as possible and that was the difference.

Thanks for the speedy reply. I knew they had a VIP lounge in Miami, as I've used it in the past. Sometimes it works well, others it's been a flop because they forgot we were waiting there.


But.. goes to show even we "supposed experts" can still have questions after all these years. And it's GREAT that we can get them answered here on the message boards. EXCELLENT resource! Thanks kids!

OH MY BE STILL MY HEART!!! KUKI is Platinum on Carnival. I never thought I would see the day.

Welcome to my world Kuki... Yes, there is VIP check in PLUS a gift will be waiting for you in the cabin, i.e, personalized stationary, a tote bag filled with goodies, (this one you will like...) free entries into the blackjack tournament and slot tournament too plus many other things. Also, as a Platinum Member you get off the ship at each Port as soon as you want. All you need to do is go to your own special Platinum Line at the Pursers Desk and tell them you want to get off the ship. They will personally escort you either right to the gangway or take you to the next availabe tendor, no waiting on line....

A couple of other things, you have priority when it comes to which seating you want for dinner and dibbs on the Specialty Restaurant(s) as well. And, most important, because you're doing a back-to-back, is the free laundry service. They only give you one laundry bag but if you need more, ask and they'll give it to you....

Looking forward to the day we once again cruise with you & Mrs Kuki....

Thanks Elaine..

I knew about the other perks, but wasn't sure if they had the VIP check in in Ft Lauderdale. Know some ports have it and some don't.

I'd had enough cruises for "platinum status" for awhile... just didn't do a Carnival cruise to take advantage since they put the platinum program into effect.

The laundry and check in will be bonuses for sure.
