We are doing the Diamond Princess Alaska on June 9th out of Vancouver and were wondering if there is a better time to board the ship to avoid any real long line ups. We are over nighting in Vancouver on our own and would like to get on board as early as possible.
Your assistance is much appreciated.
As posted at other times, you can board early but not be able to get into your cabin. We have boarded the Golden Princess at about noon but did not have access to our cabin until after 2pm.

We arrived at the Vancouver port at 11:30 and waited in the large waiting room with out 100 others until 12:00 when they began admitting passengers. Our room was not ready but we were able to have lunch in the HOrizon Court at wander around the ship. THere were no lines at that time. We cruised on the Coral Princess to Alaska in 2005.
