What is the best time to get to ship, we will be in miami the day before sailing , can I get there at 11 o clock in morning to board.

You can usually start boarding between 11:30-12:30, depending on how quickly the ship is ready after its last cruise. You can get there at 11am and go through the check-in process, and then just wait for the ship to be cleared for boarding.

Goiath, you have the right idea. Sandy is right on the usual boarding time. I like the idea of starting my vacation as early as possible. Eat a light breakfast, there will be a ton of food waiting for you on the ship.

I always get there early too. I used to follow the advice to show up at 2pm or so but then realized I was missing part of my cruise!

It is nice to board around noon and have that whole afternoon to enjoy. We eat lunch, wander around getting our bearings, have a couple drinks and establish a rapport with key bartenders...

I as well will be spending Saturday night in Miami and hope to get the family ready early enough to make it to the ship by noon!!! Cant wait!!!

Well Dave, with all that said, everyone will be a the dock at 10AM! More reason for you to get to the priority check-in status.

RCCL finally credited me for the Freedom cruise and I am now a Platinum member. Priority check-in awaits!

I don't understand why it took so long. Some people on our June 4 cruise got upgraded within a couple weeks of the cruise ending. I e-mailed the C&A and they said it could take up to 3 months to get credit for the cruise. And they were right. On September 4 my RCCL account finally showed Platinum level.

The important thing is you got it before your next cruise. Just think, only 5 more and you'll be DIAMOND!!!

And we get two credits next time since it is a suite.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 12:36 PM.
