Can you board before the scheduled tim on your sea pass? for example it says boarding time at 2:00 but can we show up around noon and get on the ship?

Usually, depending on whether or not the ship arrived on time and received clearance from customs, the cruise line will begin boarding around 11:00 to 11:30 am.

I personally show up as early as possible because I can't wait to get started. I have been on the ship as early as 10:45 before.

Good luck,

Same thing Wheels stated. We have been on board as early as 11:00am and never later than 12:15pm. Get there early and enjoy the juice, coffee, and cookies!!!!

Yes, you can board prior to the time listed on your SetSail pass. However, keep in mind that your stateroom won't be ready until at least 1:30 or so. With that in mind, your carry on bags will have to remain with you until you can get into your room.

I wasn't sure if you were planning on bringing a bag to carry onboard the ship, but I would definitely recommend it. In that, I would put at the very least a swimsuit, your evening attire for dinner that first night, and any medication you need throughout the cruise, on the off chance your checked luggage gets lost. The reason I mention putting your evening wear for that first night in your carry on is that there's a chance your luggage might not get delivered in time before you have to change to go to dinner in the dining room.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 04:34 PM.
