Online Check-in time

We are on the January 24th Dream and want to get on the ship as early as we can. I am a silver castaway member, my parents and my sister are coming on the trip too and this is their first cruise. I already checked myself in and got the first port arrival time. Their window opens up on 11/10. Does that mean tomorrow at midnight? We are in a Iowa in Central time zone so will it open at 11pm here? We do not care about port excursions, just the port arrival time. Thanks in advance!

That would be midnight EASTERN time the midnight that changes the 9th to the 10th. Port Arrival Time is handled in the online checkin area. Online checkin opens at 3:00 am the day their window opens (assuming that the DCL website is cooperating).

Full names, addresses, birth dates of everyone. Emergency contact info of a friend or rellie at home.

Passport #'s if you're using them. If you don't have them, just put that you're using birth certs (unless you're going somewhere that requires passports.) You can edit any of this stuff later.

Credit card #. If you don't want to give your credit card number (or it will expire before your cruise) you can put that you're using cash.

It will ask for your flight number. If you don't have it yet, just put that you're driving.
