Default How early can you fly out of FTL?

Is it possible to make a 7:45am flight out of Ft Lauderdale after debarkation. We are on the Oasis next month and not looking forward to a 5-6 drive after a restful 7 days....

I wouldn't risk it. If the ship arrives late into port, or there is a problem with disembarkation.... you will need to book another flight.

Too risky IMO. Even if you get off first, you still have to go through customs, get to the airport and get through security.

Thank you everyone! The last thing I want to do after a wonderful cruise is stress over a airline flight...

I tend to be pretty optimistic about making flight but I would not touch that one. It is way too early.

First of all you might want to change the title of this thread to FLL to get better answers.

Secondly 745am is way tooooo early. I'd bump it back at least 2 hours.

This question has been asked, and answered literally hundreds of times. Maybe it's time to create a sticky or FAQ, at least for the common ports?

BTW If anyone else needs the answer, please put this into google:

Hundreds of questions have been asked hundreds of times here on the boards. People who get tired of answering can simply ignore the thread.

Agree with the others..745a is way too early. We leave Saturday and have an 1130a flight on return..I am sweating that one. We got a notification from RCI yesterday that because of the budget cuts, Customs and immigration has been very slow and ship hasn't been clearing til 1230..... So hopefully we will make ours....

Good luck...

I have not read much on these boards that would support that.

Just to negate what everyone else said, 7:45am is PLENTY of time for a flight!

But really, it's not.

When new members arrive, same questions get asked, so hard to avoid, but I like Cigar Kings post regarding puting this into a question & answer, yet some may not refer back to them. Because of everything that can delay your getting off, I don't book return flights earlier then 1 PM for our flights back to Calif. Our LOS TA Oct 2011, that would have been to early, many never got off the ship until after 11.

I agree that's way too early - very risky. And yes, the abbreviation is FLL.

As a regular over on the Cruise Air portion, I can definitely tell you that, at least with flight related posts, people never, ever read the stickies/Q&A. Never. Unfortunately.

Just to clarify, family has been in the airline industry for 40 plus years and know the airport code for Ft Lauderdale is FLL, however not everyone knows these codes i.e. MCO is Orlando, figured FTL would be more recognizable on these boards...Those that have responded I thank you; was looking for a flight and thought CC would be the quickest way to get a debarkation question anwered
