Ron's got it right. That 1 hour is a bare minimum, don't try to time it or cut it close. I had a client 13 minutes past that 1 hour window and the Customs official would not re-open the manifest to add them. They were denied boarding even though the ship was right there and had not sailed. Remember they were there 47 minutes before departure time and could not board the ship. That call to your agent/cruiseline from the pier is no fun. Nothing I or the cruiseline could do, it's that guy's (jerk's, in this case) call, he's in charge.
