We waited (1st cruise)until 1:30. Waited a little..not too bad... but when we finally got our stuff to our room and found the lido deck..the lunch buffet was almost over and it was practically time for lifevest mtg. i was a ttle frustrated that I found some people had been on since morning and even the ship tour was scheduled actually before the official embarkation time.
