Hello,

DW and I are going on the Ryndam 3/23 cruise to Mexico. It seems that the ship wants all passengers on board much earlier than the time of departure. For example,if the time in port is 8:00 AM to 5 PM. However, all passengers are required to be on board by 3:00PM.

Why so much time between the required time back on ship and the actual time of departure? HAL appears to be the only cruise line that does this... if a ship is schedule to leave at 5:00 PM they want everyone back on board by 4:00 PM.

This isn't a big issue but I am just wondering why HAL does this?

Thanks,

Fred

I sail HAL each year and I have not seen a 3 pm all aboard for a 5 pm on port days. I have see 4:30 for a 5 pm departure. I believe what you have seen is on departure day, they may want you on board by 3 as the muster drill will take place at 4.
