We always get there around 11.00 am. Drop off luggage, and go park. Walk down the board walk, do some window shopping, and make our way down to the cruise terminal.
Make sure you have all your doc's filled out and ready to be presented. Don't forget your birth cert. either and a picture ID.
As a general rule, we're on the ship and eating dinner by 1.00 pm. With all the construction, going on, visit the web site that cali-croozer gave you. Things have changed there since 2003, on my last cruise.
