We will be sailing on the Norwegian Spirit out of Manhattan on Saturday, May 31st. I checked the terminal calendar and the Spirit is the only ship that day. What time should we plan to get to the terminal for a 4 PM sailing? NCL requires that you be on-board 2 hours before. What time will the boarding process begin? We are driving down from the Boston area and have to meet up with our son who lives in Hoboken.

Plan on arriving at the terminal around noon. Most likely this is the time the ship will begin boarding unless there an issue from the previous sailing. You probably will not be able to get to your cabin until 2:00, but you can have a nice lunch and then sit on the deck and have a drink and relax.
