Excursions through Disney

This is probably a silly question but we are in Costa Maya for a very short time (1:00 -5:30). If we book the excursion on the DCL site it says it starts at 12:45 and ends 4:55.

Are we safe booking through DCL's site as far as getting on and off the boat on time? We are paranoid about the ship leaving without us because we like to give PLENTY of time and show up very early on our own.

yes, if you book with DCL they won't leave without you!

The 12:45 is your onboard meet time. Your tickets will indicate where, everyone on that excursion checks-in, gets instructions, then leaves the ship together. Don't worry about return, a "perk" of paying more to do DCL-sponsored excursions is that they will either hold the ship for you or, in extreme circumstances, DCL will get you to the next port call to reboard.

Enjoy your cruise!
