With the ship at less than 50% capacity and staggered arrival times, check in at Holland America was a breeze. We had purchased the Club Orange upgrade which got us our own queue for checking in. I think the whole process took 15 minutes at the most. We showed our negative test results and vax cards which were double checked against what we had already loaded to the system. We were able to board the ship right away with no wait, drop our luggage off at the room and headed to lunch. Due to cooler weather in Florida, the sail away was a little cool, but it is always beautiful to sail out of Port Everglades.

Debarkation was just as easy. We were off the ship very early, it was easy to locate our luggage. With the boarder and customs folks now using facial recognition, you just show your face to the camera kiosk and off you go. We were out of the terminal in less than 15 minutes.
