We will be in NYC in the early morning, and Our ship does not leave NYC till 5pm. We'd like to drop bags off and then do a little sight seeing in the city before the ship leaves. How early can you drop bags off, and do you have to stay on boat until it leaves?
P.S.---we're taking the Carnival Triumph
Hi there, I took the Carnival Destiny a year in ahalf ago. As a suggestion I think it would be wise to get to the port early get your baggages and your paper work done and stay at the port. Reason being the line to get on the ship can get rather long. It would be nice to site see NY but if you want to do this your should go a day early. Even if you get on the ship early and the ship doesnt leave until 5:00pm. There are so many things you will want to do. Look around the ship, eat something, lay out by the pool, and they will have an embarkment talk somewhere on the ship you do not want to miss. It gives you alot of info. The later you arrive at the port and on the ship the more busier it is. This is my suggestion. What ever you decide have a wonderful time and enjoy. Oh yea one more thing make sure you are on the top deck at 5:00 when you are leaving so you can get a view of the city and take pictures it's pretty. Lynnie
