I wouldn't take a risk on that. You'd need to be at the airport a minimum of 2 hours (more likely 3 for a long-haul flight) beforehand. That's somewhere between 11.15am - 12.15pm. It's a couple of hours from Genoa to Milan - that's not port to airport, either.

I believe there is a coach servicr to Milan Malpensa but I can't find details. Linate is closer but you would have to be there for 12.15 latest.

If Milan is your best option for flights, I'd have a night in Milan prior to the flight home - it's too risky to get to Malpensa for 12.15 from Genoa at 9am - even if the ship docks at 8am you're unlikely to be off in time... What if bad weather delays docking? Or a delay on the railway? Milan's a beautiful city and the hotels inexpensive.

Terravision is the coach company that runs between milan centrale and malpensa

Thank you all for your help! I read here about someone easily flying home to Gatwick. So I did a search and that is a reasonably priced flight also. So we will be on th BA flight at noon to Gatwick, stay overnight, and catch an afternoon flight home the next day.

I'd be very surprised if docking started at 09:00 as they usually are docked before 7:30 with disembarkation starting at 08:00.
Last week I was at the airport at 08:25 after disembarking at 08:05.
It is well worth buying the MSC transfer by coach, (€17 per person) which is cheaper for two people than the taxi fare of €35.
I did a taxi from the airport to the ship and an MSC transfer on return journey last week. I simply asked guest relations to organize it for me
like you I was on a LGW flight , but departing at 11:50, so the time available is the same for both of us.

Just an update we ended up using the VOLABUS (ATM)
The VOLABUS service starts at 6am and finishes at midnight. The fare costs €6, but this includes a 60 minute journey time on the entire ATM public transport network, using buses, the metro trains and funicular railways
Piazza Acquaverda (the Principe FS train station)
from there it is a short walk to the cruise terminal it took us less than 10 minites ev,en going back it was no trouble
