Question Overnight embarkation: What's the drill - when's the drill?

Hi, our upcoming cruise lists embarkation at 6PM (18:00) on the 10th and we overnight in port and depart at 1PM (13:00) on the 11th. We are coming into port a couple of days early to enjoy one of the most beautiful cities in the world, so should be pretty much at our leisure on the 10th.

I understand that Princess does not want to have personnel at the ship for check in for 24 hours. So, am I assuming they want you checked in by 18:00. But the age old question is, when does check-in/embarkation really begin?

Once we have embarked, I assume we are pretty much free to come and go as we please until about noon the 11th - one hour before departure. Can I assume, also, that the muster drill will occur on the afternoon of the 11th?

Default Overnight

Yes, lucky you.. you will have an extra day to visit the city.. wonder if it's Venice.. You could cut a night off your pre-cruise to save $$$. SEE how far the port is compared to the city..
