If you arrive at the port prior to the start of embarkation you will be directed to "check-in" with other Suite Guests as your SetSail Pass will say "Suite" in the circle at the top. After check-in you will be seated with other Suite Guests and when boarding begins, this group of folks will board first. Boarding then goes by C&A level. Of course this all varies by port.

If you arrive at the port and boarding has already started, you will still use the check-in line for Suite Guests, but then will board with everyone else.

Larger room and Priority boarding was the biggest things we saw.
Liberty/Allure

Only got priority boarding on Allure.

Double C & A points are for anyone staying in a JS or above. Having a GOLD card doesn't get you double points unless you are in a suite.

I love staying in Jr Suites. Once I switched to a JS, I have not returned to a regular balcony. I love the added room space, larger balcony, and added comfort without the Grand Suite price. When finances have allowed, I have stayed also in a Grand Suite - on Vision - and Crown Loft Suite -on Allure. Both were excellent, and I loved the Concierge Lounge. Staying in those, however, depends on the overall cost. I am also Diamond, so I enjoy Diamond Lounge when staying in the JS.

We are usually JS, so I'm familiar with that routine, but there are no boarding perks if you are Diamond? This will be our first as Diamond.

All C&A members now have priority check-in. Priority boarding varies by port, but Diamond usually get to sit in the priority boarding area. Priority boarding only lasts a very short time, maybe 10 minutes. Once that period is over, everyone boards as soon as they check-in.
