Boarding Time Assigned????

What determines your boarding time? Are past cruisers the first to board, do first time cruisers board are the boarding times generally assigned?

Your boarding number will be assigned at check-in and is directly tied to your Port Arrival Time (PAT).

You will select a PAT when you do online check-in. As a new cruiser, that is 75 days prior to sail date. Early windows may or may not be available, as prior cruisers have had the opportunity to check-in online at an earlier date. However, we had no problem getting an 11-11:30 PAT on our first cruise, and boarding # 5.

Enjoy your cruise!

Also, boarding #s 1 and 2 are reserved for Concierge and Platinum CC members, so unless you're one of those, the very earliest you'll be able to get will be #3. What this translates to, is that when they open boarding around 11:45, if you have a boarding number of 3, you'll have to wait about 5 minutes.

Boarding usually goes pretty quickly, and open boarding (any number) is usually called between 12:30 and 1:00.
