Default Boarding Times

Leaving 8/20 out of Galveston (Ecstasy) at 4:00pm. How early should we arrive and can we board early? What is there to do once you board and have to wait?

You will probably be able to board right around noon or even earlier. There is quite the party atmosphere when boarding is happening all over the ship especially on the lido, where there will be music happening and people are already getting comfortable with their surroundings. Of course lunch will be being served as soon as you are on. And being new to cruising you will want to explore the ship. It is really fun I encourage you to board early. I don't think you will regret it.

Pack your swimsuit in your carry-on! The pool will be open and there will be music on the Lido deck. This is a good time to get familiar with the layout of the ship. Find your table in the dining room. I loved our time on the Ecstasy, and know that you will, too!

I'm always eager to board, so even if I have to wait in line, I want to be among the first onboard! After all, I'm on VACATION! LET'S PARTY!
