    what time can we board the ship? I'm trying to figure out what time the shuttle can pick us up at hotel and drop us off at ship. What time will we get off the ship? I need to schedule shuttle to take us to airport.

    Hi Allison,

    Here's Disney Cruise Line's guideline for embarkation times:

    For our Bahamian and Caribbean cruises, check-in registration begins at 11:00 a.m. and embarkation begins at 1:00 p.m. All Guests must board the ship no later than 4:00 p.m. Please plan your arrival accordingly to avoid the possibility of not being permitted to sail with us. For the European and Mediterranean cruises, check-in registration and embarkation typically begins at 11 a.m.

    On the morning that you disembark, you have breakfast in the previous evening's restaurant and then you leave the ship.  I'm typically off the ship by 9:00am.  I know that all Guests are off shortly thereafter.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with Allison.  Have a magical trip!
