I sailed her in Novemeber. I would suggest getting there early (11:30 pm) or later (closer to 2 pm). They didn't have a lounge area or give numbers. The process has more to do with the Terminals design than NCL. One of the screening machines was down, so they had to herd 4 lines of people through 3 lines. The Latitudes check-in line, generally is slightly faster but can be slower, depending on time of year.
