I received several e-mails from Royal Caribbean last week informing me that since the Navigator is arriving from cruising abroad on my embarkation date in New Orleans, that there would be a delay in boarding. The message specifically asked guests to not arrive at the terminal prior to 1:30 pm.
My family and I usually try to arrive just before 10:00 am and find that we are often some of the first guests on the ship. The way it stands, we plan on running a road race in Biloxi at 9:30 and then leaving for New Orleans at around 11:00 am which would put our arrival at around 12:45 pm.
My question is...do you think the terminal will be a total zoo at that point? Should we skip the road race and go earlier as originally planned?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
