I hate to ask this because I fear it will make me sound like a jerk who doesn't want to follow the rules, but I have an arrival time to the pier of 2pm (I booked last minute and this was the earliest offered), but my shuttle from the airport will get me to the pier at 11am. Were they enforcing check-in times or will I be able to check in early? I'd prefer not to have to wait for 3 hours at the pier (and there is nothing close by to walk to). Thanks! Your review has me very excited for this cruise!
