Sounds like Elites get ushered off in a line.

Nope, not necessarily. Depends on what time you are disembarking.
I have been last off before and not ushered off anywhere
I waited till as close to the end as I could.....by the time I got into
the terminal most of the baggage was all gone and it was soooooo

Ruthk--wow! I've never seen more than 15 or so people in the places they've put us. I've done it on Summit twice, Constellation and Millenium once each. Sailing Summit again 2-2.
Hope that is the case again. The key is to get there as early as possible, just like with the muster drill.

. . . or not!

Being Elite, we could have gone to the Tuscan Grill to wait for disembarkation, but the breakfast there finished earlier than we wanted.

For us, hurrying to get there for breakfast on the last day would have defeated our intention to get off the ship late, without rushing. That's why we chose to go to the AquaSpa Cafe, which was quiet, and where we had a leisurely breakfast.

No rush, no crowds, no hassle - perfect for us.
