Not really - San Diego cruise port is pretty easy compared to some of the other larger ones around the country (like MIami). If you're flying in, the airport is just a few miles a way. If you're local, I wouldn't necessarily be the first in line to board as after just a couple of hours it will have calmed down considerably. Just make sure you have the necessary documentation with you (the packet the cruise line sent you) as well as passport.
Remember - have fun!
