It depends which line you are sailing with. On HAL you can begin boarding at 11.30am and your cabins are ready around 1.30pm. We usually go on board early, have lunch and then go down to our cabin.

We arrived at the port in Barcelona at 11:30 and was able to board right away, and even get into our room!

We were on Brilliance of the Sea in July. Our documents said 2 p.m., but we were there and checked in at 11:30. The doors to the rooms were closed until 1 p.m.
