November 2015 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Eastern
We booked this cruise and completed our online check in several months ago which included a two hour check in window. . Imagine my surprise in getting a flurry of emails and automated phone calls just days prior to the cruise telling me I needed to select a specific 1/2 check in time. Suffice it to say, the embarkation system is one hot mess for those of us that do not have VIP or priority boarding. Count on at least two hours from arriving at Galveston terminal to actually boarding the ship.
We did hit rough seas so the ship rolled quite a bit but my transderm patch kept me from getting seasick.
