Default ship boarding

I just got my cruise documents for our cruise on the Amsterdam July 26. I was surprised they had boarding timed for 3 PM and the ship leaves at 5. Can you board the ship any earlier?

They sometimes start at Noon
Your T/A or HAL should have the answer for you. They should also know when they open the doors at Term 30, and about when they start boarding.

HAL does not start boarding until between 1:00 and 1:30pm. Never known them to start boarding at 12noon

As mentioned, they usually start boarding about 1-1:30 PM. Disabled and suite (Penthouse or CAT S) priority boarding first. Then they board by numbers given out during check-in. If you get there early you might have a low number but will still have to wait until your number comes up. We book a Penthouse or CAT S so we boarded 1:15 on our last cruise.
