Royal Caribbean check-in times in Galveston

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how strict Royal Caribbean is on the check-in times in Galveston?  We will be getting to the port around 10AM and our check-in time is 11:30AM; (our friends time is noon).  We have been to other ports where they don't even look at the times.  Just trying to find out if we'll be waiting around for an hour before we'll be let in.

Really depends on if/how long the arriving ship is delayed clearing and unloading. We ALWAYS get there early, as we spend the night before in town. We've been in line at 9:30 (3rd in line) and depending on how long the Suite/Pinnacle/Key line is, been inside at 10:15-10:30. ONCE, we had to wait outside until after 11:00 due to delays unloading and a LONG S/P/K line that formed during the time.

Not "really" checked until the crowd gets big enough to need crowd control. If you're in line, you get in.

Thanks for the response.  We’re getting picked up at our hotel near Houston Hobby at 9am, so should be at the port by 10am (assuming there’s no traffic back ups!). We’re Diamond +, but I don’t think that makes a difference.  Never been to the new port so just don’t know how strict they are on adhering to your scheduled check-in times.  Never had a problem anywhere else, and it sounds like we should be fine in Galveston as well (barring any unforeseen delays).  Again, thanks for your response; it’s put my mind at ease!
