I want to start things as early as possible! What is the earliest we can get on board the Carnival Splendor in Long Beach? I know most rooms aren't open till about 1:30, but I want to know how early we can actually get on the boat.

thanks

Get yourself to the Queen Mary for early check in!
It's open from about 9:00 AMish to 10:30 AMish (it can start earlier or later, and close earlier or later).

Once you've done that, you can stand in the Zone One line.
Then you will be first onboard the ship, right after weddings and VIPs.

Depending on that particular cruise, you could get on as early as 11:30 AM.
