So I've been following this new "Faster to the Fun" deal. I,myself, would definitely be interested in it. If you aren't aware of what is involved, this is what's included:
Priority Check-in with Express Boarding
The quicker you board the ship, the quicker you're holding a frosty drink.
Your stateroom will be ready as soon as you board, so you can relax or freshen up for the fun you're about to have.
Your luggage will be expedited to your stateroom so you can unpack and get settled in for a great vacation!
You'll have a dedicated phone number and line at Guest Services so you can quickly have your questions answered.
Priority Main Dining Room and Specialty Restaurant reservations.
You will have the option to choose a priority tender from the ship to shore (multiple departure times may be possible), so you can explore ashore as quickly as you would like.
We're always sad to see you go. But when your cruise is over, you may choose an early or late disembarkation time upon arrival to your home port.
The price is only 49.95 and it covers all people in the same cabin. Currently, it is only available on Miami sailings and apparently the space is limited (although there is no confirmation as to how limited). All Platinum and Diamond status peeps don't need to book this as they will already have it included. For me, it would be nice to drop my carryon as soon as I boarded and that alone is worth the 50 bucks.
Carnival states that it is only testing this program right now but I would hazard a guess that it will eventually go fleet wide as a way to generate more revenue.
