Default Embarkation Time.......Can I Believe It??

Okay..........You get an appointment to see the doctor at 2:00.....You get there at 1:45..........They call you back at 3:00..............The doctor comes in at 3:30! By then you are feeling much better and not sure why you came there to begin with!

What does that have to do with embarkation time? I really don't know but it happened to me when I went to the doctor the other day just so that I could get a prescription for a motion sickness patch to use on my upcoming cruise!

Anyway..........I do actually have a question!

My embarkation time is 4:00 p.m. Does that mean that the ship will pull away at 4:00 p.m. or just that this is the deadline for boarding?
Life is hard............It's even harder when you are stupid!!!!

That's your sailaway time...things change when people who have booked their air from the cruiseline have been delayed...Usually it's for a a large amount of people though, with traveling in the winter....

Have a foo foo and be by the rail, to hear the horn, and see the crowds waving you off...enjoy

The ship is set to sail at 4pm, so you will be waving bye to the ship if you get there at 4. The last boarding is 90 minutes before sailaway.

The best time to get on board is when boarding starts!!!! I prefer to be on board as soon as possible. It doesn't matter that I have to lug my carry on around. I can park my butt in a chair on Lido and hang there for an hour or more!!!!

4:00 is the time the ship leaves the dock but just like the doctor's office sometimes things don't happen on time. After you are on the ship it really does not matter. 8)
