Boarding Zuiderdam

Recommended Posts

We usually cruise with RCCL and arrive for boarding in Port Everglades around 11 am. We will be on the Zuiderdam in 2 weeks.

Will we be able to board  around 11 am on Holland America also ?

In general, HAL typically starts check-in about 11:00 AM, and boarding at 11:30. If you arrive for 11:00, there will be a crowd, but the process will be starting.

You can drop off your luggage with the stevedores starting around 9:30 AM but the terminal building doors will not open until all passengers have disembarked from the docked ship.  Ideally, this is around 10:15 AM unless some passengers need to be roundedup by Security and evicted from the ship. 


I drop my luggage off at 10:00 AM, pass through Security at 10:30 AM, complete check-in before 11:00 AM and board a little after 11:30 AM.
