Thanks for posting. This was a helpful thread! I received our boarding time of 3:30 today, out of New York. Our plan will be to stay at the hotel as long as possible, and grab a light lunch. Then head to the dock. With a group of 7 including 4 kids and my mom, preventing hypoglycemia in case there is a wait is the most important. I figure we will still probably arrive by 2 or so. My excitement is palpable now that I have embarkation details! Our balcony is starboard, so hoping we have some fun views right from the room, although we plan to go up to for embarkation!
