Default Check-in time for Conquest?

4.5 more days until we sail!!!

I just noticed on the Fun Pass paper work that stated check-in time to be 12:30pm at the earliest. I've read lots of reviews on this and other forums where many said that passengers were allowed on as early as 11:30am. Is this earlier time for everyone or for VIPs and Platinum members only?

This is only our 3rd with Carnival and with a cheap room, we're certainly not VIP status I'm trying to decide what time to leave the house which is only 30 minutes from Galveston. I was thinking of arriving at 10:30am-ish...give 30-60 minutes for check-in and board to start my vacation but wouldn't want to sit and wait for 2 hours in the terminal.

Each time we have cruised the Conquest we were on board and having lunch on the Lido Deck by 11:50 or so. Since rooms are not ready until about 1:30, just board and go right to the Lido Deck for a good lunch. Have a fresh cooked hamburger... one for me also. Enjoy the Conquest.
BTW. .we have always parked at Lighthouse Parking and it works great.
