Default How early can you board?

I was wondering how early we should show up to get in line to board. We will be departing from Port Everglades at 5pm on Enchantment May 16th. We do not have any special boarding priority, and will be traveling with a 5 yr old. Thank you for any input or advice.

Thanks

The check-in desks start processing people at 11am, that's when we showed up. There aren't many in line then.
The Windjammer opens for lunch at 11.30am

Also, keep in mind that you won't be able to go to your cabin until 1:00 p. m.

We try to get there as early as possible, however, that never seems to be. It's nice to get a map of the ship and take a walk around to get acclimated to the ship. I don't carry any heavy items with me because you usually can't get into the cabins till later on.
