We have sailed out of Port Canaveral twice, and will do so for a third time in October. Both times we were at the port by 11:00, and stood in long lines!! I personally don't mind it - I'd rather be standing in a long line at the terminal than just sitting at home watching the clock, but for those people who want to avoid the long lines, I would not get to the port at least before 1:00. That way, everyone who was at the port early, should have already made their way onto the ship since embarkation starts at noon. We had a great time on the Fantasy, and look forward to sailing on her again in October. I hope you have a great time!!
