I know how early we can arrive but how late can we arrive with a 4:00 pm departure out of Miami (Valor)? also when are the busiest and lightest times? Don't mind boarding later if it will avoid crowds and waiting.
2:30 - don't know about ebbs and flows. We did a Carnival transfer a few years back and did arrive pretty close to 2, and got through embarkation pretty quickly.
