Castaway club check in

Now that were castaway club members I hear we'll have a separate check in at the cruise terminal, my question will the rest of my family (separate room) who are not members be able to check in with us? Also is there any benefit to checking in there if not ill just check in normal with my family.

Yes, your family may join you at the Castaway Club member desk. You may also board together as well.

Be aware that due to the number of stations, the regular line MAY be faster than the limited stations at the Castaway Club desk. Just eyeball it when you arrive and try and make your best guess.

1st time being a silver Castaway member too, where do you line up for the special line? Is it close to where you normally line up??

It's the right side of the long counter. First time cruisers are on the left.

Technically, that is only correct if they get the same boarding number. How well that is enforced, I do not know. Or they could wait and board with them if the other party has a higher boarding number.

There is a separate CC checkin line. There are times when that line is actually longer than the regular one. So, look around and see if it will save you any time by using it.

Our experience with traveling with non-CC members: first time, they were allowed to accompany us to the CC line. Second time, they had to use the regular line. It depends on the CM who's monitoring the lines.

One note, if you have different PATs, you will have different boarding numbers. DCL asks that those parties with different boarding numbers use the highest number for boarding, if they wish to do so together.
