First time cruising and we are leaving Sunday 11/18 on the Carnival Pride out of Long Beach. We would like to know how late we can arrive without risking missing our ship. We are planning on arriving at the terminal at 2:30. We have some family in the area that we would like to see that morning. Also we would like to carry on all of our baggage as they are all rolling bags, I haven’t measured my bags but I am guessing some may be slightly more than the 24” x 16 maximum, is this strictly enforced.
