Hi All

I just had a rather rude response from P&O regarding getting the earliest possible check-out & disembarkation time as we have an early-ish flight - I was told that all the early time slots are filled and that they can't change it... The last cruise I went on they asked what time you need to be off the ship while on the cruise, not 2 months before!

I'm cruising on Pacific Aria in April. Can someone confirm the way they work out the disembarkation schedule, and is it still pretty quick?

Thanks!

The lady 3 cruises we have done we have taken off our own luggage in the morning rather than leave it out the night before. Each time we have just woken up and walked off the ship when we were ready. We haven't had any issues.

Just off the Aria yesterday, I just went to reception and asked politely for a early time, docked at 8.00am in car driving home at 8.50 am.

PS that was the best cruise we have been on everything was just right, wonderful, staff, service and food.

We finished a cruise on Pacific Eden yesterday and were allotted a late disembarkation time. We just swapped our tags at reception for an earlier time. We took our baggage off with us which also saved time.

Hello from Texas! We will be disembarking Aria in Brisbane, catching a domestic flight to Melbourne on a Friday. All luggage we can disembark with ourselves. What is the earliest flight time you would suggest in that port?
