Thanks everyone. I appreicate the tips. I will probably show up around 11 AM in the hopes of being on board by at least noon. That is usually lunch time for my little one. But, I'll make sure I pack snacks just in case.
We left out of Miami two times before, granted on much smaller ships, and never had line problems. I remember longer lines Ft. Lauderdale. Were your cruises Sunday departures ? I am also hoping leaving on a Sunday is less hectic.
