Early! We sailed on Oasis and I want to say we boarded around 11am. I know we ate lunch before noon. We took the RCI shuttle from the FtL airport right to the ship.
We had the ship to ourselves for a few hours. We went right to the hot tub that hangs over the side after lunch. We were all alone for a long time. People walked by but it was really nice! Oasis is awesome!!! Enjoy. I'm jealous!

We sailed on Allure and always plan to be at the port for 11am to be one of the first on the ship. We got there at 11.15 and there were already at least a hundred people there.... The Windjammer opens for lunch at 11.30.
You will not be able to get into your stateroom until at least 1pm. Have items with you that you might need until your luggage arrives, it can take several hours.
