Default what is the earliest time we can board Oasis/Allure?

I know from numerous past sailings that the actual time they tell you or suggest you board is not the real time. we always try to get there as early as possible - as in we like to be onboard by, at the absolute latest, 11am. I know that when we got our Allure information it had a later onboard time than the Voyager class ships have given us in the past. does anyone know how early we can board and what time we should really get to the port? I want to be there first thing so we can really get a good feel of the ship before it is mobbed!

If there are no problems with the previous cruise or the ship, boarding will start at 11 am.

While the new terminal is huge and efficient, it doesn't mean first-there-first-on. There is still priority and suite boarding. Are you Platinum or above?

You can get there at 10:30 and I think you'll be onboard by 11:30, providing there was no problem with the previous disembarkation. Have fun.
