Hmmm.....that seems odd that we would originally be given a boarding # of 39 with an 11:00 PAT. That seems more like a boarding # for a 2:00 PAT.

Might be specific to the Vancouver port. When using DCL transfers to Port Canaveral, while PAT is not important regarding being allowed into the terminal, it will impact your boarding number. For example, you arrive at MCO at 9:00am and catch a bus arriving at port around 11:00am, if your PAT is 1-1:30pm you will likely sit for quite a while watching other passengers board but if your PAT was 11-11:30 you'd be in one of the earliest groups called to board the ship.

Other ports may work differently.

The number on your KTTW card isn't your boarding number. Last cruise we had boarding #3. The number on DD's card was 12. She was 12 on that cruise but IDK if that was specifically for her name. I checked my DS's KTTW card and it doesn't have a number in that spot, but his was a Vibe KTTW card. Last year our boarding number was #5. The number on my KTTW card is 25...but that was not my age at the time.

I was told on two different cruises that the number on your KTTW was actually the number of the check in "station" that you checked in at. One long counter but numbered for each of the check in stations. Just going by what I was told.

It is the station you check in. The couple cruising with us last February had the adjacent check in agent and we figured that out.

Another example of a CM making something up. I checked with my TA because this simply didn't make sense based on when we did our online check in. She asked the supervisor at the port about the number and was told it indicates the CM who checked you in at the terminal.

Yeah, we were gold and got our 11-11:30 time at the 105 day mark so a 25 definitely doesn't work as a boarding number for that.

If there are people in your group with a #9 boarding number and people with #14 boarding number everyone should board with the later number. They may not let you all board with the earlier boarding time.

My brother was allowed to Board last year with us at our earlier time.

The number on your KTTW card is your lifeboat number! It took me forever to discover this. I had #2 on a card and no one could tell me what it meant. The next cruise I had #11 and finally figured out it was a lifeboat number. I check the boat above my last muster station and it was indeed #2.

Wow! Ok, this makes sense. Our muster stations have been inside both times so I have not actually seen the number on our lifeboat before.

The large letter is your muster station. The reference here is to the smaller number in the middle of the KTTW card along the bottom.
