Our flight has been changed coming home from the NOS in July. I know that the cruise line says not to book a flight home before noon, but I am wondering what time you can "really" get off if you need to
Question specific to this thread: We are sailing on the NOS starting Apr 30. I have a 1:15pm flight out of MIA on May 7th. Should I try to get 'esclated' so I can leave the ship earlier? If so, how do I do this? Also, is a porter just someone who handles the luggage and hails a taxie? Sorry for the newbie questions.I was just on the NOS 0409 sailing and had a 130 flight out of Miami. We were given Red tags and were called at 815...by 930 we were in the bus for the airport and sitting at the gate around 1045 or so. Made for a long wait. Take that for what its worth.
We got off our Disney cruise before 8 a.m. I was pleasantly surprised as that had never happened to me before. Normally it is at least 10 a.m.If you wheel off your own luggage does Customes still have to search it? Now that I'm worried, but will it still delay you?
One thing though-now more and more ships are offering self assist-early debarktation-so if you are willing to take your luggage off yourself you can get off sooner. I bought more luggage, all wheeled, so I can take advantage of this.
