We're taking the Serenade out of San Juan in November and just got our travel docs (YAY!!!!).
This is our second time out of San J. The first time, we departed later in the evening and were allowed on-board around 1pm. Our docs for this cruise say that despite the 8:30 departure, boarding is not until 5:30. That doesn't allow much of a window before the 90-minute cut-off.
It seems Serenade has a 13-night repositioning cruise right before out trip, which is probably the cause of the late boarding. Does anyone have any suggestions about how early one could expect to board in a case like this? Thanks!!!
