We are staying in NYC within walking distance of the pier the night before the cruise. We're strongly considering purchasing Vibe passes, and as such we are looking to arrive near the front of the crowd. We enjoyed our time in Posh on the Epic, and arrived at the pier around 9:45 AM with only a 15 minute wait outside before they opened the doors to begin processing incoming pax. We secured a position in the first non-suite boarding group, and ended up being 3rd on the ship among the non-suite guests.

Is the situation the same in Manhattan for Breakaway embarkation? What time should we anticipate arriving to be within the first 50 or so people into the terminal?
