Hi guys, just a quick one in regards boarding at OPT, I recently cruised on Radiance of the Seas and boarded at 11am. I have a friend who is boarding on thursday and on his seapass it says boarding at 3pm, i believe they are now trying to stagger boarding to avoid the congestion that tends to happen at the OPT, his problem is he booked transport to get him there at 10am so will he be allowed to board at 11am or are they enforcing the time on the seapass, any assistance would be appreciated i told him there would be no problem with dropping his luggage off first thing but not sure about boarding early???
Hi Pete,

your friends cruise is scheduled to leave 6.30pm according to sydney ports...perhaps that has sometning to do with it.However on both our rhapsody cruises they were 6.30pm depatures and we boarded both times around 11.15.the ship nealy always clears its paasengers by 10-10.30 at the latest.
