Barbara, when Milli first sailed in December, they started boarding at 10:30. When
we were on in March, we were allowed to board at 11:00. Also, was just on the Radiance from Ft. Lauderdale, and we were on by 11:15. So, get there early, take time when the ship isn't so crowded and tour, you are in for a great cruise, the ship is fabulous!
It seems as though the time for check-in is dependent on the arrival of the local
staff. On the inaugural of Infinity, the local crew did not arrive until 12 noon.
The procedure goes very smoothly, however, provided you have all your documents
completed, plus your credit card for on-board purchases.
We were on the 3/25 Millie cruise and boarded at 10:30 AM. There were very
few passengers there at that time. We booked the Olympic restaurant as soon as we boarded and got to choose the day and time we wanted.
