Thanks guys. I did call Carnival and the guy said we could get a platinum card THIS cruise but as you have suggested I will call again and see what answer I get. Unfortunately, my travel agent does not seem very helpful. I seem to have to be my own advocate to get my questions answered. Thats why this forum is so helpful!!Should I even use an agent? I always have because I seem to get the best rate through using one.
Hey, another question---If I am the group leader for this cruise but the rest of the group does not have 10 cruises can they possibly go through with us? Probably not but I guess I could try...
Thanks again!

I would definitely give it a try. Since everyone is checking in together and you are the group leader/travel agent, step right up there with everyone's info and go for it. I bet they won't turn you away.

cruiseman,
I will. We always like to get to the dock early and so I will bat my eyes and see what happens.Good idea about having all the paper work together. I already had everyone fill out their funpass and we are ready! I love to get on the ship as early as possible and then hit the Lido deck for chow.Like we will not have enough food for 8 days!! :-)
Dec. 2nd cannot come soon enough.

gawd, I am dreading these check in lines I am hearing about. I read some cruise reviews and that seems to be the main gripe.

I just recently had back surgery and it is hard for me to stand on my right leg long enough to cook let alone in these long lines, o lord, lets see what happens. wish us luck!

Wrain: Depending on when you arrive at the port, the lines really aren't THAT bad. If you are among the first there, the wait might get long but if you show up after 1:30 you should get on rather quickly.

Joy..I can sympathize what you are going thru coordinating everyone's trip. I am doing that for 14 people and I really dread checking in. Between getting everyone discounts, parents in adjoining rooms, etc. we had to book cabins one way, only to have to change most of them after we board...That alone might take a couple of drinks to get thru!

tncruiseman,
There are 18 of us! Scarey... I have tried to cover all bases so to not have problems once we arrive but you never know. Just have to go with the flow. The group is flying in the night before from all over the U.S. so I just hope everyone makes it. Can't wait till we are all on the ship---then I can breath! :-)

Another way to know before you go is when you get your Cruise Docs they will say "proceed to Carnival's VIP check-in upon arrival"

Also make sure you maintain one Past Guest Number for all your cruises. I had to have mine combined. And a couple in VIP with us had cruised the same cruises together, yet he had a platinum card and she had gold.

Another way to check is to go to Carnival.com and enter your number and your cruises for that number will come up.
