Cruising is a great way to vacation but for anyone unfamiliar with the boarding process, the first day of a cruise can be stressful. Cruise lines call the boarding process, embarkation. Embarkation is a fancy word for getting you and your stuff aboard the ship. This post will breakdown the first day embarkation process of a Disney cruise and help you better understand some of the things you will encounter at the cruise port. I have included as many pictures as a I can so when you arrive for your first Disney cruise you can embark like a pro.
