In most cases, you can usually board around noon. It all depends on how quickly they get the previous cruise cleared with customs and disembarked.

I've been on 17 cruises, all with CCL, and I have never got on the ship before 1:30 pm

Be patient. Remember the ship you are trying to get on as soon as you can also has to unload 2000-3000 people, their luggage, clean, prepare for another eager load of happy cruisers, etc. The cruise line wants you aboard just as badly as you want to get aboard simply because the sooner you get on, the sooner you will be spending money.

We were the very first people to board the Fantasy & they let us on at 11:30. It was a 4 o'clock departure (we were in the parking lot before everyone had even left the ship. We were so excited!
