Ok, Im confused on the 12am booking ship things.. Like spa's etc. I see people saying there booking date is coming up and they will be up to book at 12, and getting the early boarding time etc. So how is this done and why is it a good idea? Im ready to pay off our cruse but I was waiting till close to the due date of march 4th. Is this due date the date that I can stay up late and make sure we get a early boarding time etc? If so, what should I do on this night also that would be a good idea? Thanks yal!!
Should i just pay it off now??

In order to book reservations for excursions/dining/nursery/spa, you must be paid in full. Your booking window opens (assuming you are paid in full) at different times based on your Castaway Club status. Platinum CC member & concierge can book at 120 days out; Gold CC - 105 days out; Silver CC - 90 days out. First time cruisers window opens 75 days out.

Most people try to log in immediately after midnight as soon as their window opens so that they can get those "prime" reservations (Palo/Remy/cabanas) and/or the earliest Port Arrival Time they can.

I booked my cruise around 75 days out and I am in the first arrival time. It all depends on your cruise.

I did online check at the 75 day mark a noon arrival time was available. Not everyone wants to get to the port super early or does online check in.

Also how you get to port plays heavily into this as if you are using DCL transfers you get there when they get you there. At least that's how I understand it. Early boarding comes into play most when you have private transportation to the port or staying at the port. So don't count us first timers out yet we can still very well get just what we want! ;)
