Marseille boarding time


Recommended Posts

We have just received boarding passes and final documents for next Wednesday 15 May boarding Fascinosa in Marseille and very surprised to see a boarding time of 14:30  with the notation it was important to follow this instruction. We had planned to arrive between 13:00 and 13:30. Does anyone know how imperative it is to arrive no earlier than the stated time? Obviously, we would not look forward to a long wait in the terminal, so if this is written in stone we would try to adjust our arrival time. Just can’t ever remember boarding so late but then this is our first Costa. Often, on other lines boarding times are a bit flexible so look forward to info from Costa veterans:-) Thanks in advance!

Depends which terminal you'll be using and how many ships are there. It's entirely possible that the Port Authority is forecasting some chaotic conditions earlier in the day. The satellite terminals aren't very comfortable and traffic can be slow.If you have a later sailing it's worth considering a later arrival.
