Carnival Cruise Lines has begun testing a new program on two ships that provides guests with an exciting array of highly attractive benefits including priority embarkation, early stateroom availability and express luggage delivery, among other features, available for purchase through the new Faster to the Fun program.

The pilot program will roll out on Carnival Imagination August 20 and Carnival Liberty August 25.  Faster to the Fun includes early embarkation, early stateroom availability, express luggage delivery service to staterooms, priority dinner seatings and tender availability, and choice of early or late debarkation. The program enables guests to get their “Fun Ship” vacation started early and also includes express access to the ships’ guest services desk for any assistance guests may need during their voyage.

Faster to the Fun was developed based on extensive guest surveys which indicated a strong interest in a fee-based package providing priority access and benefits.

For Diamond and Platinum level members of Carnival’s VIFP (Very Important Fun Person) Club guest recognition program, all Faster to the Fun benefits, including the two new benefits of early stateroom availability and express luggage delivery service, are available free of charge.

Faster to the Fun is currently available for purchase in conjunction with voyages on the Carnival Imagination and Carnival Liberty via the shore excursion section of located at :  The cost is $49.95 per stateroom (regardless of number of occupants).
