docking times vs excursion times

Hi everyone
I am having trouble wrapping my head around this and need some advice.

We're going on a 6 night western carribbean cruise out of Galveston. On our stop at Cozumel, the itinery says we'll be there from 10:15am-4:35. I've booked the Atlantis submarine through DCL for 8:30am-11am.

Do you think there is something wrong with the times? My excursion starts before we even dock. I called DCL and they said everything looks fine (the posted times are correct) and that 8:30 is the meeting time before getting off the boat. But does that mean I sit around for almost 2 hours before I get off the cruise ship and that my submarine excursion is actually only 45 min?

On other cruises I've been on, it would be typical for the excursions to gather earlier and to get off the ship before the rest of the passengers. That's probably what will happen with your excursion. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Early morning excursions are given priority to get off the ship on port days. You will go to your meeting place and follow your CM off the ship before the rest of the passengers who have been told 10:15.
