I know some of these questions will seem silly to those seasoned cruisers but to a first time cruiser we want to be as prepared as we can. 1. Are we given a boarding time for the cruise ship, and since we are staying at WDW for 4 days prior to cruise are we given a a bus boarding time too? 2. Once we get to the cruise ship how long is the boarding process? Any tips to make it go quicker? What will they ask for; passport, drivers license....? 3. We signed up for an excursion on-line at the Disney Cruise web site and I expected them to ask for a credit card to hold this excursion but did not have to give any information, is that normal? 4. I know that tips are paid or added on to the charges when we check out but if we order room service do we tip when the food is brought to us or is that also added at the end (unless we choose to give extra tip when delivered?) 5. Looking for flights home after de-boarding. What is a safe amount of time to give for getting to the airport. I was thinking after 12 noon - what do you think? Thank you all for your cruise knowledge. I'm sure I will have more questions so really appreciate all your help!
