You can start preboarding at 11-11:30 & they open the doors at noon.....we were just on the Diamond....same terminal we just left on Saturday. We were in our cabin by 1:00. Hope you enjoy your cruise!!!!!

My experience has been that as soon as the current passengers disembark; the new passengers are allowed to board. I have boarded at 12:00. Remember first you have to check in your luggage with a porter. The porters appreciate a tip. Make sure you have your name, address, phone number, and cabin number inside the luggage (in case the outside tag comes off) and a tag outside completely filled out. This will speed up the boarding process. Then have your passport and cruise documents in hand. You will need your drivers license or picture I.D., and a credit card. The next thing you know you will be aboard the ship.

Happy sailing!

We're Alaska bound in September. We've always booked shuttle service through Princess to and from the airport on previous cruises, but plan to arrive in Seattle a day or two early to do some sightseeing. We're booked at the Marriott (Waterfront) and will take a cab to the port on "cruise day". I'd like to know if we take our luggage when we check in at the terminal, or is there a luggage drop off location we need to be aware of?

Susie.......you can do both........when you get in line there will be someone there directing you to lines.....one to drop off your luggage & one to take your luggage & get in line to check-in. We decieded to take ours with us & have one less line to stand in......if you take it with you you have to take it all the way to the ship.......no drop off after you get into the check-in line......
Enjoy & have fun...........
