When can I board the ship?
Embarkation normally begins approximately 4 hours prior to departure. Passengers need to board the cruise no later than 30 minutes prior to sailing. For those tourists who arrive the city earlier, they may put the luggage on the cruise first, then they can explore the city before the sailing. Generally, the cruise depart at early morning which provide the pre-boarding accommodation but no dinner served at the night before departure, so you'd better have the dinner in the local restaurant by yourself.
