Hi. We are at the Il Lugano and check out time is noon. We are boarding tomorrow. What time can we reasonably expect to get on the ship. The documents say 2 pm. Any chance of boarding before? Thanks,

you can usually get on before 11-11:30, however, you won't be able to get to your stateroom until either 1 or 2. that part varies, but they will tell you when you board when you can get to your stateroom. in the meantime, go have lunch in windjammer and then explore the ship. keep you bathing suits with you and enjoy the hot tubs.

The world is not going to come to you. The sooner you realize this, the more time you'll have to pack. Get out there!
