Our cruise departs Galveston on July 1 at 4:00 pm. I plan to be at the pier with my documents, funpass, etc. already ready to go by 2:00. Is this cutting it too close or will I have plenty of time for boarding, etc.?
That should be fine. Most of the folks will be gone and it should not take all that long to check-in.
Now for me, I would be there NLT 1300; but that is just me.
SS Norway (12 times) '85 - '97; Radiance OS 06/01; Island Princess 11/04, Grand Princess 11/04/05, Golden Princess 7/21/06, Golden Princess 2/24/07, Explorer of the Seas 12/23/07, Island Princess 11/15/08
You'll have plenty of time to go thru the boarding process...is there a reason why you're not arriving until 2:00 p.m.? It usually takes 45 minutes to 1 hour before you are actually on the ship. I have never boarded a Carnival ship any later than 12:30 p.m. (arriving around 11:00-11:30 a.m.). This puts you on the ship in time to enjoy a leisurely cocktail and buffet lunch.
We went on the Conquest in 2005, arrived a little late at our private parking lot (believe we got to the lot around 2 PM)... They had a shuutle for us & our luggage.... The terminal had NO lines so we were wisked through, loved it.... Had time for a late lunch before the Sinking Drill.....
