Default embarkation time

Will be sailing on the Glory soon from Canaveral. The Carnival info says embarking time begins at 1:30. Is this accurate or do they start boarding sooner? thanks

They start boarding earlier. Most ports you can start checking in around 11 or 12.

Default When is the real embarkation time?

While many of the cruise ships will let you on earlier than the "official" embarkation time, they may not let you go to your cabin. Don't worry---they will feed you all afternoon until your cabin is ready.

Most cruises I've been it's been around 11:30 am that you are let on.... VIP is usually around 15-30 min. earlier.

I have been on as early as 8:30 am but that was a fluke.

Our cruise out of Charleston, SC leaves at 10 pm.... not sure when we the ship even arrives... it will have no passengers on it as it is coming straight from Miami.

I just got back from the Estascy and I was on by 11.45 or 12.30 and on the Lido deck eating. There was NO line to check in. We had to sit in the chairs for about 30 minutes if that long and then we were allowed to board. I had to wait until 1.30 to get to my cabin, but no big deal.
