peggisue Posted October 15, 2013 #1 Share Posted October 15, 2013 Good afternoon ..... just got an email from Carnival regarding our upcoming Legend cruise on Monday out of Tampa. I did a search of these boards and found many posts about boarding being delayed due to a Coast Guard inspection, but not one about an open loop cruise. The email said (in part): On Monday, the Carnival Legend will be arriving in Tampa for the conclusion of a cruise that started in New York. This voyage is open loop (meaning it started and will end in different ports) and will require that our debarking guests go through additional document screening by Customs and Border Protection. Consequently, in order to minimize your wait time and provide you with a smooth boarding experience, your cruise check-in is now scheduled from 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM. For your comfort and convenience, since seating is limited, please do not arrive before 1:30 PM. Our departure remains the same at 4:00 PM. I am a platinum cruiser, and am curious if anyone else has any experience with delayed boarding due to the cruise coming in before us being an open loop cruise. What time did you get to board? We'll have the VIP room to sit in, but with my older mom, I don't want to get stuck in there for hours. Thanks so much for information! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
