First cruise out of Port of Baltimore coming up soon. Ship sails at either 4 or 5 PM(I forget which). What is the earliest that my wife and I could expect to be able to board? Also....how hard will it be to find my ship (Grandeur of the Seas)? Are there signs to help us park close? Thanks for any help you can provide.
I thought the Baltimore Port was great. Was very easy to find even though I don't know Baltimore very well. We parked only a few hundred yards from the ship. Embarkation and debarkation were a bit of struggle with lines, waiting, etc...but I really have no complaints.
We sail out of Bailtimore frequently. They are improving the process. Royal Caribbean says that you can get on at 1 (or 2) but we usually plan on getting there about 10:30. They usually start letting priority passengers (people is suites and their diamond members) on around 11-11:30 and everyone else shortly after.
Also, with the ships now going out of Locust Point, the ship is about 5 minutes off of 95. There are signs that make it easy to find, and all right turns after you get off the interstate. Parking is quite close to the ship. From our house in Columbia we can get there, luggage dropped off, checked, pictures taken, and on ship in in less than 45 minutes.
