Default San Juan 10:00 p.m. Embarkment

We are cruising on Carnival's Destiny in July - leaving San Juan at 10:00 p.m. Has anyone ever done this embarkemt time before?

What time can you start to board the ship? We are staying at a hotel in Isla Verde and want to plan ahead on what time to leave the hotel. We don't want to get to port to early only to find that that we are hours early.

Also with leaving at 10:00 p.m., what time do they have the muster drill?

If you get on the ship during the day, can you go back off the ship to explore the city, shop, etc. prior to embarking at 10:00 p.m.?

Normally, you can start boarding around noon, all depends on how quickly they disembark the previous cruise.

Yes, once you are all checked in and have a sign/sail card you can get off the ship and come back later. The muster drill will be right before you leave when everyone is on board.

We had a 10pm also, but it was on RCCL. Our muster drill was about 5-6pm I believe. I think it was before the first dinner time. It was early.

So, wait.... I have to wake a sleeping baby to do a muster drill at 10PM? That's insane!

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.

No, you won't have to wake a sleeping baby, all the tones and loud announcements coming over the speakers will do it for you!
