6 hours is a pretty long pre-sail, especially when you don't have the casino or any of the shops, but hey - your vacation has started, so I am sure that after wandering around getting to know the ship, eating, drinking and people watching you'll STILL be able to enjoy yourselves!

Freddie are you serious there are people running to the ship as it is pulling away in general you can board a ship 4 hours before sailing. I would like to see someone running for a ship as it is pulling away from port.
Re: Re: what do you do on the ship before it leaves
What do you mean RECONFIRM your dinner and spa apointments? Did you make the reservations before you boarded? Am I missing something that every body else knows that appointments must be made before boarding? thanks for the info
Dont forget about the ever popular lifeboat drill! Everyone must partake in this event donning those wonderful bulky orange lifejackets. Dont you just love it when the ship photographer takes your picture in it?
i take a small bag on board with me with my bathing suit in it. i like to lie out by the pool and relax in the sun. you will have plenty of time to explore the ship later and there wont be large crowds in the pool area. nice way to unwind and start your vacation. have fun!!!
