Default Carnival freedom/MIAMI best time to arrive?

Hi, thanks for everyone's help who has responded to my other posts. What is a good time to arrive for boarding in Miami for the Carnival Freedom? I was thinking 130 pm, but any other suggestions would surely help. I just dont want to stand in real long lines.Better to get there early or later> Thank you!!

11:00 am. You'll be on board by noon if not earlier depending on if there are weddings on board or if the previous passengers are taking a particularly long time to debark.

The lines are going to be longer early in the process; all the eager beavers wanting to be amongst the first on the ship.

Cabins aren't normally ready to occupy until 1:30, so arriving at 1:30 -2:00 or so is likely going to result in the shortest lines to check in.

Most cruisers want to be on board ASAP, so if you are there at noon, expect embarkation lines. Just grin and bear it and before long you will be in your cabin ready to change clothes and PARTAY !
