Limited. They have to move product from Miami/FLL/PC to the Caribbean. As they really don't have large terminal space, I imagine it to be a rough embarkation at the start. Although they won't have US CBP to deal with either so might streamline things a bit. I'm not warm on getting on an early Caribbean cruise until they work out the bugs. Believe the cruises departing from the large European ports, like Athens or Singapore, will provide a more normal embarkation/debarkation process.

This is a great sign. I hope everything goes well.
