Default How early arrive at dock for boarding

Am sailing Grand on 3/17. How early should we arrive for boarding? Want to make sure we get on early and get a reservation at Sabatini's. Have chosen Personal Choice, so I guess we don't need to choose early or late seating. Other than shore excursions and Sabatini's, what other things do we have to check in for right away when we board. My husband gets stressed if he has to wait in long lines. Any advice on how early to arrive?

Hi Ames,
Anytime around 12:00 noon is a good time to arrive at the pier. If there are any shore excersions you want to do you can pre-book online at the Princess web-site, nice feature. You can also check your booking, but you need your booking number from your travel agent or by calling 1-800-Princess. By having all that information completed, makes boarding quick, we did have the express check-in and it only took about 2 minutes and we were boarding, it was great!

Have a great Princess cruise.

Thanks Donna! They have moved our departure time up from 7:45pm to 5:00pm. Does that mean we should arrive at 10:00am?

Hi Ames,
Actually they still have to clear customs and clear the ship from the cruise before you, so noon is still good :-)
