We arrived around noon and our driver dropped off our bags at the big white tent at the dock. He then drove us to the terminal and we walked right in and never even stood in line. We were on the ship in less than 15 minutes. We enjoyed the afternoon by resting a little in our cabin and on our balcony, exploring the ship before it got busy and then having lunch.
Hope you have a great time.
