    We sail out Jan 30/11 from LA for the mexican riviera and are wondering what time to be at the port to begin boarding the ship, we sail out at 4:00pm? This is our first cruise and we are clueless! :)

    Hi Kyla,

    Congratulations on booking your first cruise!  The Mexican Riviera voyages aboard the Disney Wonder are sure to be spectacular!

    The all aboard time for cruises that depart from the port of Los Angeles is 4:00 p.m., just like in Port Canaveral.  Based on my experiences in Port Canaveral, my goal would be to have checked into the terminal by noon at the latest.  Typically I try to arrive between 10:30-11:00 a.m. so I can obtain a low boarding pass number (you board in groups based on first-come first-served).

    The ground transportation information provided by DCL states that you should arrive at the airport no later than noon.

    I hope this helps, have a great trip!
