Default Cabin Opening Times

Question please from an RCI newbie!

Do the cabins open up at a specific time or does it vary from voyage to voyage dependant on how long they take to get them ready.

Trying to plan how long we will have to keep our carry ons and therefor show much to put in them.

Thanks, Gillian.

I've experienced 1-1:30. Only once it was 2:00, don't remember why but could have been following a noro outbreak.

You should also be aware of that even though you may have access to your stateroom, you may not receive your checked baggage until much later. In our carry-ons we always pack anything that we expect might be needed onboard for the first few hours of embarkation day. On our most recent cruise we boarded at 11 AM and received our checked baggage around 5 PM.
