    If the room is a person name with more sailings and earlier reservation eligibility. Can she reserve for all of us or do we have to wait until our reservation eligibility

    Ahoy and welcome back to planDisney, Kristi! You must be getting excited with that beloved "Welcome Aboard!" greeting just around the riverbend. It is such a delightful moment when you can say "good bye" to the daily routines and put life on cruise control mode.

    There are so many benefits to being a member of the Castaway Club. If you are traveling with members of your stateroom with different levels, the highest tier prevails. My husband and I did a cruise without our kids and achieved Platinum before they did. On our next cruise, I was able to pick our activities and complete online check-in for all of us at the same time, even though they were still Gold. They did get Gold lanyards while ours were Platinum, but that was the only difference.

    As a Castway Club member, the first person eligible based on the Castaway Level can:

    • Book Port Adventures and Onboard Activities, like adult-exclusive dining, Senses Spa & Salon, beverage tastings, and "it's a small world" nursery 90 days before you sail for Silver; 105 days before for Gold; 120 for Platinum and 123 days for Pearl. These activities can be booked for all guests in the stateroom.
    • Complete online Check-In and get that amazing Port Arrival Time 33-40 days before the cruise, depending on Castaway Club level. You will all get the same arrival time and boarding group.
    For the online check-in, the person completing this will need pictures of everyone's travel documentation and pictures of each guest (think passport-style, head and shoulders, facing forward, solid background). I stay up and do this at midnight to get the earliest Port Arrival Time, so you will want to make sure your friend has everything before the Online Check-In date arrives.

    Please come back to planDisney with any other questions. We are here to help you with smooth sailing.

    Life is the Bubbles!
