Can anyone tell me about the embarkation process at the Port of Baltimore? I've only been on one cruise on RCCL out of Fort Lauderdale and am not sure if I should expect the same process. Our cruise departs at 4:30PM but the port information on Carnival's site indicates the embark hours start at 2PM. Does this mean we won't be able to board the ship till 2PM? I'm just trying to figure out what time I should actually get to the port. Also, I have a suite booked and my luggage tags show VIP. Is there a separate boarding process for those with the VIP tags?
Thanks for all.
