I book the Valor for Sept 15

Now I need to buy flights it is better to take a 6:00 A.M flight Jet blue or

Spirit 1:00 P.M The day of the cruise I can't flight the day before.

 

Either way your are pushing your luck, I hope those are arrival times. The earlier the flight the better if you are talking about flying the same day as the cruise. How long of a flight are you talking ? You can never account for problems with with the flight, baggage, trip from airport to port.

I would call carnival if you booked thru them, they may be able to help

BTW, if I was you I would buy the trip insurance. I know someone who did what you are doing and they missed the ship, they flew to the next port and caught the ship there, carnival reimbursed them.

From FLL to SJU 2 hours and 33 minutes.

 

Does your cruise leave at 4 like most of them do ? If so definitely the 6am With the 1pm you won't even get to the airport till 330, unless there's a time change, not much time to retrieve your bags and catch a cab to the port.

I always book the first flight of the day. That way if there are problems, like the flight being cancelled, chances are better that you can get the next flight, and you have extra time to work with. Even if there aren't problems in your area, bad weather anywhere in the country can delay your flight. The earlier flight serves as a buffer. You can always find something to do at San Juan if you arrive early. If you are not into independent exploring, you can always book an excursion through Carnival for that day.

 

Hope you have a great cruise!
