Default Valor Question

Do you start boarding at 11:30 or 12:30? And what time is the muster drill if the ship is leaving at 4pm? We're going on the Western Caribbean cruise this Sunday.

It varys every cruise when they start boarding. It depends how fast they get the other people off and when they are cleared by Us Patrol to start boarding more people. So you can get there as early as you want like 10:30 and check in and maybe get on the ship or wait in the waiting area until they start boarding. The Muster drill usually starts at 3 30

Boarding will go pretty smooth. The muster lasted about a half hour for us the week of 9/21. Have a good time. Be sure to check out the Java shop on level 5 behind the casino. Good coffee and the price is good.
