online check-in question

I am in the process of completing online check-in. What is the best port arrival time to choose? We will be taking a transportation service from the Royal Pacific hotel at Universal to the port. The earliest arrival time is 10:30...does that mean we will receive an early boarding time too? Or could we get there at 10:30 and be given a boarding group of #40?

The boarding number you receive at checkin at the port is tied to the PAT you select. Earlier PAT = lower boarding number, later PAT = higher boarding number.

Boarding doesn't actually being until around 11:15-11:30 with Concierge and Platinum Castaway Club members, then #1, 2, 3, etc. With a 10:30 PAT, I'd guess you would be onboard by 11:45-12:00 at the latest.
