Default What time can you board the ship?

If a ship leaves at 5 p.m., what is the earliest time they start letting people on the ship? Just trying to figure out flights.

Thanks!

We normally get to the port around 11 a.m. and never have long to wait to board the ship. We are always onboard for lunch.

Same here. What ship are you booked on and when? Some ports are more restrictive and you have to wait.

Thanks!
If it's possible, consider going to the port city the day before your cruise leaves. There have been MANY horror stories about people missing their cruise due to delayed flights. If you miss the ship, it's your responsibility to get to the next port.

If you can't go the day before, get the earliest flight you can out of your city.

We got on Mariner at about 11... and there were lots of people already in the Windjammer. Cabins usually are not available until 1pm
