Default Ft. Lauderdale Carib Princess Embarkation

My last cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale was on Holland AM. I was able to have my family at the check in by 11am. With Princess, what time is best to get to the dock and get checked in?

Thank you

We had a 10:30 hotel check out so I think we were at the port by 11:00. Just waited in line and at 11:30 they opened the doors. Have a great cruise I loved the Caribbean Princess.

We got to the port last week at 11 a.m. Stood outside in the sweltering heat for 1 1/2 hours before the doors were opened. I felt so bad for the elderly folks out there in the heat with no place to sit. Once they opened the doors and we got inside it went quickly (about half an hour). I would recommend getting there later after the crowds die down. If they are late opening the doors, it is hell sitting out in that heat.
