  1. at Port Everglades, if you order from Special Needs Group, you can pick up your wheelchair/scooter right in the terminal....
  2. Are you sailing the 15th or returning the 15th? There will be 7 ships in port on the 15th and 8 on the 22nd..... This is going to be a VERY busy port for debark. If you want a chance to make that flight you should definitely self debark and be one of the first off the ship. Hopefully you have a passport and will be able to use the facial recognition.
  3. So I was able to get some info on the program. I think it is great for those that have late flights..... You learn something new everyday. You will have to get off the ship with your luggage and go thru customs , and then drop your luggage at the suite luggage entrance and meet the shorex staff and wait in the general boarding area till 0 count. You board back with your original sea pass card before general boarding commences....You need to be off the ship 90 minutes before the next sailing. You will then collect your luggage. This is only for Celebrity Terminal 25.
  4. Maybe for Celebrity but not for Royal..... I will check with my Celebrity contact as well as CBP. Not sure how this will work as they want 0 count onboard before we can even board the back to backs....
  5. I work at Port Everglades and we do not have this program. In looking at the Royal FAQ's it is only offered in select European ports.
  6. You will be fine answering no. CBP is more concerned with those overstaying B1/B2 Visa's.
  7. It is simply not acceptable nor is it right to ask for an exception. Your non-FTTF cabin will be sent to a separate seating area to wait for boarding. You could wait and board with them.
  8. Yes, Truly is available but only one flavor.
  9. I am further south at Port Everglades...Don't stress about this... Just leave it as it is and bring the passport, ARC and his driver's license. His passport will be stamped with the ARC notation. They have an amazing documentation person in Port Canaveral that handles the Royal ships up there....Have a great cruise!!
  10. Yes, I do have experience with this. I work at a port and handle this on a daily basis. What ship are you sailing?
  11. If cruising form any US port he MUST use the ARC card unless it is a one way TA or full transit Panama Canal cruise. The US does not recognize dual citizenship and once you have an ARC you are considered part of the US.
  12. Since he has a ARC, input that information as that is what he will be checked in with. Although his passport can not be used to check in, bring it anyway to show the 2nd last name.....
  13. I will see you Saturday!! Just stop by the Pier Coordinator's desk and say hi!!
  14. You are in one of the 5 states that has the EDL.... So many states are confusing that with the new REAL ID which you still have to bring a birth certificate.
  15. I am pretty sure that the Indy will be arriving at T-18. The porters normally start taking luggage around 9:00-9:30 and the doors to the terminal will open around 9:30. There are limited benches out side the terminal, but once inside there is plenty of seating. As this ship is coming from Europe, there will be a longer than usual debark as both the passengers and the crew will have to go thru customs and the ship might even have an USCG inspection, which will mean a later embarkation. Pack your patience if you are coming early as you may be sitting for awhile. There is a Alamo rental car location right out side the main entrance to the port and they do have a shuttle..... You might just be better off dropping the car first as the shuttle driver will help you with the luggage.
