What Deck # is Embarkation?

Recommended Posts

In my experience, first-day embarkation is on the Promenade deck.  At ports of call, it's usually on one of the lower decks, but it can vary depending on the port & the tidal conditions.

The embarkation deck is usually normally the Promenade deck (the one with life boats hanging overhead)

This deck has the most space to handle the crowds of guests boarding and presents little or no bumps

and hang ups for mobility impaired wheelchair scooter guests.

When entering the ship you can go to any of the reservations service functions in the Atrium without having

to change decks.

 

As noted this varies by (size of) ship - some of the -AWAY class ships board with more than one set of gangways

through adjacent decks - odds and evens to facilitate faster boarding

Port calls and tendering ports the entry is closer to the waterline.

 

Need exact specific info what ship date and port are you sailing from - - - - - ?

Not everyone sees the signatures.  In fact - I had to go into my settings to see what I had to turn on in order to do so...

When I board in Boston, it's deck 7.

 

On the GEM or the DAWN deck 7 is the Promenade (Atrium) deck

The ESCAPE deck 6 is the Atrium deck
