Tender/Shuttle Tickets - Platinum

Recommended Posts

When we arrive in Cabo on the Panorama we have to shuttle in.....   the fun times states that we need a ticket. We are Platinum but haven’t had to Shuttle in a long time. Do we need a ticket?  We are supposed to be priority with Platinum status. How does that work?  We have to get off fast as they pushed our dock time out by an hour and now we will be late for our private tour. Thank you.

There will be instructions on how those with priority status can use this perk.  It does stop when there is no lines. Usually a meeting spot is designated and a crew member will lead the group down and you join the line on Zero deck (they don't walk you straight to the shuttle).

Diamond/Platinum are supposed to have priority. I have never tried that, I don’t feel right cutting the line of other passengers. 


Also, if it is a private tour they are not to be too concerned about that. 


Cutting in line of other passengers for the water shuttle is no different than the P/D/FTTF line at Guest Services.  It's a privilege that you have earned (or bought if  FTTF).   It's kind of like a Fast Pass at Disney.

Yes, Diamond and Platinum get priority tendering. As someone already mentioned you will meet at a designated located and be escorted ahead of the lines.


Honestly, who cares about the glares from others. You earned you Diamond or Platinum status with Carnival and deserve the few perks offered. If they want similar perks they can book a few more cruises.

We are platinum and when we were at half moon cay about 6 years ago they told us to go to the guest services desk and they took us down in a service elevator I believe and we boarded the tender without having to wait in line. We haven’t had to tender the last few cruises but I hope we can do this again when we go next month!

Usually they have you meet somewhere like guest services and they escort you there ( just try to ignore the people in line glaring at you)

I only glare when Platinum/Diamond folks flash their status gifts at the MDR table.  How uncouth.

With FTTF, a notice is left in the staterooms regarding where to meet for priority water shuttles. I think It's the same for Platinum and Diamond guests.

I checked the website,  it's the same as Platinum and Diamond.
