Default Diamond Princess - Seattle boarding time

We are departing on the Diamond Princess from the port in Seattle and are unsure what time to arrive at the cruise terminal. On our Disney Wonder cruise last month, we were told to arrive early and board first so that we could make dinner and spa reservations. Should we also do this for the Diamond Princess boarding. The official boarding time is 12noon. Any advice from recent cruisers on the Diamond Princess, and do we need to board as early as possible to make dinner or spa reservations? Thank you.

On the Sapphire Princess June 20th, we began boarding right around 11:30ish, but check in began around 10:45ish, but I got the feeling that was a bit later than what they had planned.

Just off the Sapphire on the June 27th to July 4th cruise
We got to the terminal at about 10:30 and registered at once. About a 15 minute wait to do that. They started boarding at about 11:45. It went well. Be prepared for the xray machine before you leave the building. Then the only log jam was on the ship when they take your picture for the cruise card.

Boarding went very well and very quickly I thought for a full ship.
