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.

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.
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.
