USCG is an annual inspection for ANY cruise ship home-porting in the US. If all goes well, you might be able to embark as 'normal' - 11am ish? I'm onboard now, and the usual weekly crew drills have been running very smoothly - assuming the CG doesn't throw the ship a curve ball ;-) all should be business as usual.
