Thank you Mary Robinson for sharing the navigators. There was a considerable amount of negative feedback from guest sailing on this cruise with regard to their port experience. Most of what I saw posted in online forums and on Twitter painted a miserable experience. Mary was kind enough to share her experience which shed some new light on the subject, primarily the port was in the midst of a construction project. I wanted to share Mary’s experience as it was not all gloom and doom like the early reports I read.

Unfortunately, the port was under construction for this cruise.  We got in line, which looked like a very long line, at about 12:30 PM, and walked through the construction maze to get to the terminal.  It was pretty hot (over 100 degrees which is not normal for San Diego at any time), but cast members brought us cups of ice water, which was nice.  We got into the construction makeshift terminal and checked in, and walked right onto the ship at about 1:30PM.  Despite the construction mess, the line queues after we got up to the terminal were well organized Disney style 🙂

It wasn’t a horrible experience, and as long as that line looked I thought it would take us a lot longer to get inside, but the line moved pretty quickly.  The port workers were very apologetic for the mess and assured us that the construction was going to be finished soon and next time we came it would be much nicer 🙂

If you have any navigators you would be willing to share, please send me an emailIf you would rather upload the files you can use our new upload form.

    We were on this cruise too, and arrived right at our PAT of 11:00. It took us about an hour and a half to make our way through the line, something we were really not prepared for. Once we got checked in, it was only a few minutes before our boarding number was called, but the compared to our previous experiences, we found it to be really frustrating. They didn’t seem to be enforcing the PATs at all, as the family that was behind us had a PAT of 1:30, and we saw them on the ship shortly after we got on.
