Default Ship sailing @ 4 pm: What is the latest time to board?

Not a question that I have ever had to deal with before....
because I am always on the ship as early as possible.

Anyway.... someone in my group is going to need to board as late as possible.

What is the latest boarding ..... on a 4 pm sailing?

For a 4PM sailaway, I wouldn't get there any later than 3PM. The ship needs time to complete the embarkation process and prepare for sailing. That takes at least 30 - 45 minutes to close up and secure the gangway, doors, etc.

The closest I've cut it was 6 minutes. And when I got on, they said 10 were unaccounted for. I later found out that a total of 8 were left on land at that port. In other words . . . DON'T BE LATE!!!!
