Hey all. Kyle here. I know Sid has just done an amazing live review of the Encore,  but with the ship being new I figured another perspective wouldn’t hurt. My partner Brad and I are going with some of our friends and family- 8 total. This will be my 8th cruise, all on NCL starting when I was 19 years old. More to come, but essentially we have a pretty consistent routine when we do these:

-Start 2 days before by driving from Kentucky to somewhere in Georgia

-Drive the rest of the way to Miami on the day before the cruise 

-Stay at a hotel (for this trip it is Aloft Miami Int. Airport) that we book on Parksleepfly.com . We use this website because the hotels that advertise there all offer parking in the rate while you are on the cruise.

-Uber to the port the morning of the cruise, usually very early (we like to be group #1).

 

Stay tuned for more! Please post any questions and we will be more than happy to answer if we can!

How early is early? Cruise docs say not to be there before 11.

To be in group 1, you need to arrive before security opens. Priority boarding starts before 11:00 and General Boarding before 11:30. By 11:00 there will be many hundreds of passengers in terminal.

Thanks Bird. We have priority access. Is 9am too early you think?
