I've been on a few cruises so far, but I don't typically keep track of my time on board.
So my question is; is there a set time for the safety briefing? 30 mins prior to sailing? Once everyone is on board?

Just wondering, also wanting to see if there's enough time to soak in the hot tubs before, lol

It will be in the fun times when you board the time it is schedule for. It is usually on time, possibly late they will make an announcement before hand. Use the hot tubs but bring a change of clothes, the drill can take awhile sometimes and some ships you are sitting in the theater or dining room or lounges, depends on your room location and the design of the ship.

Most ships will have some one walk around the pool or hot tubs giving a warning that muster will be in XX minutes. That should give most people that pay heed time to change.
