We will be leaving on the Panama Canal Cruise in mid-December from Ft. Lauderdale on the Emerald in a full family Suite. I have searched the forum and there is lots of advice and conflicting info on this topic. Can anyone provide better incite for this specific port, cruise, ship? We want to get there as early as possible for family reasons, I am not interested in what time the cabin will be ready, only in what time we can board the ship. The information provided in our cruise packet for boarding is far later than the CC information I have found here.
Here is what it says:
"Priority check-in will be available to guests with Priority Boarding within the allocated check-in times. Boarding will commence shortly after check-in. Please do not arrive prior to the start of cruise check-in as your cabin will not be ready.12:30 PM - Aloha and Lido Decks - Cabins on these decks begin with A & L 1:00 PM - Dolphin and Emerald Decks - Cabins on these decks begin with D & E 1:30 PM - Caribe Deck - Cabins on this deck begin with C 2:00 PM - Plaza and Riviera Decks - Cabins on these decks begin with P & R 2:30 PM - Baja Deck - Cabins on this decks begin with B"
Thanks on advance.
