Heard there were some problems initally when the GRAND moved to the new home port. Wondering if anyone recent cruisers have input of advice, as well as how early can we arrive??

We just about walked right on. It was so smooth and quick. We were there around 1:00 and had no waiting at all.

We were on the Grand 1/29/05. The embarkation was very smooth, walked right on. It helps to fill out the pre-immigration form on-line.

We also just about walked right on! BUT it was a Tuesday at noon. We also had already filled out all the forms online. It really depends on how may ships are in port at the time. If you are sailing on Saturday it may take longer just to get to the pier and have your baggage checked, etc.

Is there more than one ship there on Saturdays?
