    We have one person who will be arriving later than the majority of our group for our cruise. Is it possible for us to board and for her to board when she arrives or do we all have to board at the same time? She is sharing a cabin with others there early.

    Ahoy, Jennifer!

    Thank you for stopping by to "sea" us with your question about your Very Merrytime Cruise next December. I was able to enjoy all the merriment of a Disney Cruise last month and think you've chosen a perfect time to set sail this year. The ship really sparkled with all the holiday decor and the extra activities like Santa's Winter Wonderland Ball and the Deck to Deck Tropical Holiday Party made for an extra magical time! Be sure to have your camera handy at all times because I took about a million photos of every holiday detail I could find! I really think your crew is going to love all the holiday cheer found aboard Disney Cruise Line during their Very Merrytime sailings. 

    I'm so glad you asked this question because I want your vacation to start off with a smooth embarkation. Disney Cruise Line does require that all members of a stateroom check-in and board together. So those Guests in her stateroom will have to complete the check-in process once she arrives at the cruise terminal.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Jennifer. Please keep us in mind if you think of any additional questions about your cruise. You'll be surprised at how quickly the days will fly by, and it will be YOUR turn to enjoy the magic and wonder of Disney at sea!
