We will be sailing on the Victory in Jan of 2003. I have read many reviews and most the recent reviews say there is a long wait and long line to board the Victory. Does the line move at a good pace or must you stand for long periods of time before moving closer to the head of the line?

The reason I ask is my wife does wear a leg brace and it is hard for her to stand for long periods of time. We will have just gotten off the Norway when we go to board the Victory so it is not like we can wait longer at a hotel or the airport.

Lines can be long, especially for a ship this size. Carnival has made great strides in speeding up boarding, but standing for some periods is still going to happen. Why not ask for a wheelchair at the port?

I sailed on the Victory in January 2001 and did not have a very long wait at embarkation. I have cruised on Carnival many times and have been impressed on how quickly the process takes. What slows them down is if people don't have their paper work filled out in advance.
