Noon or so will get you on board by one usually. We got there too early one time and had to sit out side next to the buses until the others had cleared the ship. Now we go between 11-12.

If you arrive by 11:00 a.m., you should get thru embarkation quickly and be on the ship by 12:30 p.m.

I agree w/Rose Tatoo. Each of the 6 times we have been to Miami, we have arrived at the port by 10:30 since traffic is horrendous at the port, we go right thru security, check in (any longer to wait and check in and the line is about 500 people long!) and go right upstairs and get our sail and sign cards and have a seat until they call us. We have always been on the ship about 12:15(one of the first ones on!) and have the whole afternoon to enjoy the ship, eat lunch before it gets insanely crowded since everyone is scrambling to get to the buffet if it is late, put our carry on bags away in our cabin, tour the ship, have some drinks, and if our bags get delivered around 2pm, we frantically unpack and hang everything up to waste as little time as possible. By 3pm, we are unpacked, full, have seen the whole ship, and are on our next umbrella drink. All we have left is to enjoy!!
