Carnival Cruise Line has made it more costly to get to the
fun quickly on most cruises.
It has implemented a new pricing structure for its “Faster
To the Fun” program, which offers early embarkation and other perks for a fee.
The fee used to be $49.95 to $59.95 depending on cruise
length. Now the maximum fee has been raised to $79.95 on cruises of eight days
The new schedule still starts at $49.95 for two- and
three-day cruises. Other price tiers include:
• 49.95 for four-day cruises excluding
Carnival Liberty, Carnival Paradise, Carnival Triumph, and Carnival Victory
• $59.95 for four-day cruises for Carnival Liberty, Carnival
Paradise, Carnival Triumph, and Carnival Victory
• $59.95 for five-day cruises
excluding Carnival Sensation and Carnival Victory
• $69.95 for five-day cruises on
Carnival Sensation and Carnival Victory
• $69.95 for six- and seven-day cruises
• $79.95 for eight-day cruises and
The fee offers priority in security and check-in lines and
express boarding, as well as a cabin ready for occupancy at boarding and
priority luggage delivery. “Faster to the Fun” also comes with priority tender
boarding and dining times.
The cost is assessed on a per-cabin basis, so one fee covers
multiple guests staying in the same cabin.
