when it says you arrive in port at 8am how long does it take to dock and leave the ship. we're on the allure in oct. and are looking at a segway tour at 8:30. is this possible or cutting it too close. thanks

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm 99% sure that means that is the time you start getting off. I don't know how far away the tour beginning place is from the ship, if it's close you should be ok, but 8:30 may be cutting it close if it isn't right there in the port.

I believe you are correct that the inidated port time is the time you can begin disembarkation. This looks like a very similar recent post and I will anwer it the same way as previously - if the tour the OP is refering to is ship-sponsored then the meet time is coordinated with the ship disembarkation time.
