How far ahead to mail box to ship?

Hi,
I am about 20 days out from my cruise. If it will take about a week for my box of FE gifts to reach the port how soon should I mail it? I don't want it to get lost because it arrived too soon but last year I waited too long and almost did not get the bbox to the ship

Great question! If you mail a box to the ship does it end up in your stateroom or do you have to pick it up somewhere?

I live in Houston and mailed a box from UPS Mon to the DCL warehouse. It arrived Wed am. 10 days before our cruise. Next time I'll wait and mail it the Mon before our cruise. Cost me $15 for a 12x12 box weighing 23 lbs. so worth it. I called to make sure it arrived.

Anyone else have a recent experience to add? I really want/need to ship a box, but am SO nervous it won't make it to my cabin. Like everyone else. I'm putting a lot of time, energy, and money into my gifts, and I'm afraid it would ruin my trip if they didn't arrive.

We send it to arrive 3-4 days prior to the cruise date. The last time we did this was in January. We sent 2 boxes for our 2 staterooms. Both boxes were in the room when we arrived.
