Question Pride of America - Boarding time?

We will be sailing on the Pride of America in February.
How early can we register and board the ship in Honolulu?

Also, on the final day of the cruise, what is the time frame for leaving the ship?
We are planning to fly to Maui on that day and we are trying to determine what time to schedule that flight.

we dropped our bags off at noon and lots of people were boarding then, we didn't. We drove around some more then returned the car and boarded about 4 pm with no lines at all

We took our time getting off the ship but I think people were able to leave about 730am?

Have a great time! We loved it

At the end of the cruise, we always book ourselves on our inter isalnd flight home to the Big Island at about 10:30 am . We don't feel rushed at all on that last morning....plenty of time for coffee and a bite to eat and then we walk off the ship with our luggage and jump in a cab. We have always made it to the airport with plenty of time to spare.

Thanks for the info.

We were planning to get to the ship at around Noon on that first day.
It sounds like that should work out fine.

We have booked our next flight for Noon on the final Saturday.
Will we have time to take Robert's Shuttle to the airport from the ship or should we plan to take a taxi?
