Last November the ship pulled along side of the pier at 6am. ( it was written 8am on the itinerary, but the captain told us the evening before we would get to NYC early ) We were actually tied at 6:30, we were in line at the aft exit around 6:30. Not that we didn't liked the ship...we just had to get back to Montreal asap. Immigration officer cleared the ship around 7:30 and we were actually the first ones off the ship.
So first on the escalator, first at custom and first on the rooftop to get our car and left promptly to get back home.
That is if you do carry your own luggage. The first color tags to be called are priority disembarkation, vip's, suites, etc..
So if you can, carry your things and you are sure to make it early !!
you have to pardon my english, french canadian here !
