what time can we board the Summit in San Juan?

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Cruise Critics. The boarding times should be listed in your E-Docs, They will tell you what time you can begin boarding and the final all aboard time. What time do you sail?

8:30 p.m.

Normally boarding can start around 12:00Noon but that can vary depending of when the ship is docked and release by US Customs. Then there's the turn-around process when the staterooms are refreshed and made ready for the new passengers.

8:30 pm is probably when Summit departs San Juan. We were in line around 11:00 am this fall and boarded by 12:00. It was great way to spend the first day of our cruise.

As mentioned above, boarding typically begins around 11:00. Once on board, your stateroom will be ready by about 1:00. Have lunch on board and then leave your carry on items in your stateroom and head into Old San Juan if you like for the afternoon. Cabs are available at the pier and in town. Check on when the lifeboat drill is and as long as you are back on board for that and 90 minutes prior to departure, the day is yours to do as you wish.

We were on the Summit again earlier in December. We boarded at 11:30 although we could have gotten to the pier earlier.

The muster drill was at 7:45.

For Cruise Ship People — It will take an extra long time to travel between your ship and the airport, or from the festivities in Old San Juan to the Pam Am Pier. Plan accordingly so you don’t miss your ship. The usual 15-minute drive can take hours. Also sailing on Jan.20 and found this info that might be of interest . I assume time to ship will be longer also.
