Tampa priority embarkation question?

Recommended Posts

I am headed out on the Carnival Paradise this Saturday out of Tampa.

 

After a call from the upgrade fairy, I am now in a Junior Suite up on deck 14- which means my boarding pass says "Priority"on it.

I also previously purchased FTTF, so that is also on the boarding pass (still trying to decide whether it is worth cancelling the FTTF...but that is a whole other matter...)

 

The only  appointment time left was for 1:30- do I actually have to wait to board until that time? OR can i show up at 11 and board early with priority or FTTF?

 

Anybody have experience with this?

 

Thanks!

I don't think you need FTTF if you have priority boarding.  Suite guests usually board right after Diamond & Platinum.

I am not a fan of FTTF, but there are some perks you get with it that you don’t get as a suite guest.

Just boarded the Paradise as Platinum last Monday.(Feb. 11).

 

The order is Diamond, then Platinum, then Suites, THEN FTTF  folks.

The suite folks sat in the same area as Diamond and Platinum.

 

So yes, you can cancel your FTTF.

All of the above info is correct, and I too think it's a waste of money for you to purchase FTTF.  I'd damn sure cancel that, and get your money back. 

Captain Carnival will take good care of you boarding in Tampa.  Just seek him out, and introduce yourself.
