Default What time can you board?

Can anyone tell me the approximate time that NCL allows you to board the ship? We're crusing on the Dawn in October 2006.

Thanks!

it varies somewhat with each ship, but is usually about 1:00 p.m.
Look at your tickets, it will tell you.

We just took the NCL Star out of Seattle on 6/25/06. It showed a 1:00pm board time but when I called NCL they said about 12:00pm. We arrived at the dock at about 11:15am and there were already alot of people that had checked in and were waiting. We didn't have to stand in line to check in and only had to wait about 15 minutes after check in because the boat was ready ahead of schedule. They started boarding the first group by 11:30am. Remember to take anything you will need for the first few hours on the boat with you in your carryon. My son would have gotten into the swimming pool if he had had his swimsuit. Your luggage won't get to your cabin for several hours.

1pm is official but we on our last few cruises we have boarded about 11:30am. Many times even if the cabins are not ready you will allowed to go aboard. This is very different from the days of yesteryear when 2pm was pushing. NMnita

All things change, some for the better,some not:you were lucky. Our granddaughters (the 2 oldest) have been lucky as well: Parents used to work for an airline, now a rservation company that used to be owned by the airline: parents have also lived in Europe, grandma retired from a major hotel chain before becoming a TA and aunt still works for an airline. They too have been lucky. NMnita
