Hope you can answer several questions for me regarding our Jewel cruise out of Boston on Sept 11/04. How many and when are the formal nites as there is only 1 sea day on that cruise (isn't that usually when formal nites are held?) and is there an informal (semi) nite held also & when? My others are: since we checkout of our hotel at 11 am (ship leaves at 5pm) should we go to the pier or wait for awhile & how long till we can embark the ship? I really appreciate this service. Many thanks in advance & happy cruisin'!
Presume this is a 7 day cruise? If so days are likely to go as follows. First night, casual, second night formal, third night casual or informal, fouth night same, fifth night same. Sixth night formal, seventh night casual. Your documents will tell you how many of each, but probably not which days. Formal night is not necessarily a sea day.
Don't know how far from the ship you are staying, but if you have 11 am check out, stretch that pretty much to its' limit then head on out to the ship. Once you go through documents, security etc, ship should be available to board. Drop carry onsin your room and head out to explore ship. Ask where food will be served , generally there will be lunch available.
