I'm leaving in 2 weeks for Bayonne. They tell you not to show up until either 5 pm or 6 pm BUT I had friends that were on board by 3 pm a few weeks ago. Other message boards indicate the same thing. I have their daily schedule. Bars open at 3 pm, Windjammer Cafe at 4pm, early dinner at 5:30. If they say don't show up til 5, why is everything on board open earlier? The VOS isn't schedules to arrive back in Bayonne (from its Caribbean cruise) until noon, thats why late boarding.
