We are scheduled for the 1130-1200 check in. Will the terminal be open at 1130? Any experience as to how soon the ship clears for regular folk to board? Thanks.

I presume your question is about Port Everglades and not Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL). All ships have to be cleared of previous passengers before boarding can begin but check-in can begin earlier. It would be best to ask your specific question (name the ship too) on the appropriate cruise line board:

In general, yes - most ships start boarding about 11 or shortly after that.

As others have mentioned, more details- ship for example- would be helpful.

I am willing to bet the Terminal will likely be open prior, with checkin ongoing, perhaps as soon as 10:30. Boarding, which is separate, may not start until around 11:30. But this might be determined by cruise line policy and procedure.

Port Everglades of course. Thanks everyone. Last time we were there it was a free for all. I'm hoping the check in experience will be more civil.
