Divina Yacht Club arrival & Debarkation times

Recommended Posts

Is there a preferred arrival time for those in the Yacht Club?

 

Related, is there a selection of times for debarkation, preferably the later the better?

 

Trying to see how much we can maximize our first experience with MSC!

Our e-tickets said 2:00. But our hotel in Fort Pierce overlooked I-95 so we decided the YC Embarkation lounge would be infinitely better. We arrived around 11:30 and were escorted almost immediately to the Yacht Club - the only stop in the embarkation lounge was the time it took to check-in. We're glad we arrived early. In retrospect, we should have made plans to eat lunch in Le Muse when they opened, but the buffet at the One Pool Bar was fine.

We arrived a bit earlier than we should have which was around 11:00 and had to wait outside for 20 minutes. So next time we'll show up around 11:30. They needed us out of the cabin by 8:00 and the ship around 9:00. We had a great breakfast in Le Muse and came back for our carry ons. They we had a last cup of java in the top sail before saying arrividerci to the crew. Our bags didn't need to be put out until 2:00 am which was great!

We arrived around 11am and were taken on the ship within 15 minutes. As far as debarkation, our butler told us to tell him what time we wanted to leave and he escorted us off the ship and past the lines.

Did you have a suggested time on your documents? From the other post is the first I've heard about assigned times for YC guests but maybe I just missed it.

I think there was something amiss for our boarding as it hasn't been the norm from reports. There was only 1 seashore butler checking everyone in when we arrived and he wasn't able to leave to escort us in. He had to wait for help and Thee seemed to be a communication problem between him and the other butlers. Just a small blip in our experience...

Our documents said 11.00, embarcation in Miami was very chaotic and took over an hour. We didn't want to disembark early but were required to be out of the cabin by 8.00, breakfast in the top sail lounge and escorted off around 9.00
