If you're new to cruising, or even if you've gone before, if you're cruising on Carnival, you want to get a Faster to the Fun pass. Even if you are trying to save as much money as possible, the fee for Faster to the Fun is nominal in comparison to what you get in return.

Five reasons to get a Faster to the Fun pass

  • Priority Check-In: When you are ready to get away from the world and take a vacation, the last thing you want to do is wait in line for hours with thousands of people. The Faster to the Fun pass means you get priority check-in. Thousands of people will stare at you in envy as you fly past them in the priority line.
  • Guaranteed Stateroom: If you've never cruised before, you might be surprised to find out that the first thing you will do when you get on board is go find a place to sit and wait, because your room will not be ready. Nine times out of ten, your ship has just returned from sailing and crew members are working hard to clean the rooms from the previous guests. Unfortunately, that means you will be waiting around until your room is ready. If you have a Faster to the Fun pass, your room will be cleaned first and will be ready to walk into when you get on board.
  • Express Luggage: You might also be surprised to learn that your luggage will not be waiting for you. When you check in, you leave your luggage with attendants for your deck. They then come around later and deliver your luggage to your door, but this can be a few hours after you actually make it on board, meaning you are stuck with what you brought in your carry on until your luggage arrives. With a Faster to the Fun pass, you will receive your luggage before anyone else.
  • Dining Reservations: Carnival has two different dining times, early dining at 6:00 pm and late dining at 8:15 pm. Almost everyone wants the early dining, so when you book you will more than likely be put on a waiting list for early dining. What you don't know is they save spots for guests with Faster to the Fun. Purchase this and you can dine whenever you want.
  • Debarkation: When your vacation has come to an end, the last thing you want to do is wait in line again with thousands of people to try and get off the boat. Depending on your assigned debarkation time, they will make you leave your room and you will have to sit on deck with your luggage waiting for your turn. With a Faster to the Fun pass, you get early debarkation, meaning you are one of the first off the boat and can get started on your journey home faster than everyone else.

They are very popular and constantly in demand, but it is worth checking back often to see if someone has canceled or more passes have become available. You only have to purchase one pass for each stateroom, so if it is just you or a family of four, one pass will cover you all. Prices do vary, but the Faster to the Fun pass starts at $49.95. #Buzz #Travel
