Florida Departures Ft. Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Miami & Port Canaveral & Tampa
Actually you can board before noon... Embarkation typically begins at around 11-11:30am... If you arrive at FLL at 10am, and that's only IF the flight is ontime, and they hardly ever are, you aren't going to have time to do anything but get to the Port of Miami and get on your ship. I'm not sure what you had in mind, but you can't wait until departure time to board! Get to the ship, get onboard, have a nice lunch, get settled into your cabin, and before you know it, it'll be time for lifeboat drill and sailaway.
