At each embarkation port there will be an exclusive check in line for Platinum, Platinum Plus and Ambassador members. We ask that eligible members check in through this line. After check in, Platinum, Platinum Plus and Ambassador members will be guided from the exclusive check in line to a priority embarkation seating area. Once the ship is ready for priority embarkation, Platinum, Platinum Plus and Ambassador members will be invited to board. Priority embarkation will take place immediately following the completion of embarkation for guests who require special assistance and The Haven™/Suites guests. Members who check in once embarkation has already commenced will follow the same process, however priority embarkation once boarding has begun cannot be guaranteed at every port; members may have to board in order of arrival at the port. The priority embarkation seating area may not be available at all embarkation ports. Priority embarkation may not be available at all embarkation ports.
