When I cruised with C&M from Greenock, departing at a similar time, we did not start boarding until 6:00 pm and those on the lower decks (C&M usually board in deck order) and on first sitting for dinner were unable to use the main dining room.

Your late departure time is probably due to the tide for the previous cruise is not due to dock until noon which means that disembarkation will not complete until around 4pm. Your embarkation is unlikely to begin before 5pm and CMV will try to be strict about your arrival at the port so as to avoid congestion. So it looks as if you can have the best part of the day in Bristol before embarkation. Given the departure time I would expect CMV to delay the first and second sitting dinner - they will not want lots of passengers trying to switch to the late sitting. Given Reed's experience however that may not be the case. You should get your tickets soon which may clarify the embarkation and food issues - Good Luck.

Thanks very much - very helpful. We'll enjoy a day in Bristol as we are flying down from Scotland the evening before. After reading Reed's answer, we did actually switch to second sitting dinner, just in case, so hope they don't delay it too long or we'll be starving! We also contacted CMV and they estimeated boarding between 4 and 6 so you're spot on Our tickets should come soon as it's 3 weeks today 'till we sail ...can't wait @) .
