When Does Embarkation Begin?

Recommended Posts

I'm sailing on Adventure OTS in April from Fort Lauderdale...... Departure is listed at 5:30 PM.  We're flying into FLL the night before so can be at the port anytime, and want to be on board as early as possible.... when does boarding begin?  What time do people suggest getting to the port?

 

Thank you.

As this is a specific RCI policy, I would ask on the RCI board. Probably by noon.

 

People think boarding is different at each port. It really doesn't change much. It follows whatever policies and procedures the individual cruise line uses.

Boarding will vary slightly depending upon when they can clear the last customers from the previous cruise, cleaning, maintenance, etc.  Usually starts about 11:00 or just after - arrive about 10-10:30 and you should be among the first on the ship without too much of a wait.

I cruised Serenade last week out of Port Everglades. We arrived at 10:15am, the terminal opened at 10:45 and boarding started at about 11:45.
