I'm now looking at flights to/from Amsterdam.  I'm trying to find out how disembarkation will take place so that I can decide on the time for the flight home (which will be a very sad day).  We dock back into Amsterdam on day 7, with disembarkation the next morning.  I'm looking for confirmation of how I think disembarkation will take place.  One: We can disembark whenever we want for me that will be after breakfast; 2) there will be no requirement once we disembark to go through Customs and Immigration before making our way to the airport.  Unlike on a Caribbean cruise from New Jersey where you disembark then visit U.S. Customs and Immigration and then go to the airport.  

Please let me know if my thought process is correct.  If not, please set me straight! LOL

Yes that is exactly correct. Some people left the boat at 3 or 4 in the morning and others left after breakfast. Your tour director will call you a cab if you need one. Fellow passengers staying in Amsterdam will leave when they are ready. I believe we had to be out of our cabins by 8:30 so they could get ready for guests arriving.

Yes disembarking is sort of sad.  However when we did it this year at the end it was painless.  They know how to do this and it’s no problem.  How you do it depends on what you signed up for, I will assume your getting off the ship and are going home not staying extra days.  You will have signed up for the transfer to the airport, buses will be there.  Yes you will get breakfast and likely depart for the airport around 9-10am.  However, they will also arrange for a cab if your leaving on say a 4am flight.  We disembarked in Basel, we had people going to Italy, Zurich, France for another cruise etc.  everyone was taken care of.  We went through customs at Amsterdam airport on arrival and we connected there on the way home to US and went through it again in Amsterdam.  If you signed up for extra days in Amsterdam stay where they put you and you’ll be taken care of, stay somewhere on your own and your on your own.  One last tidbit, the train station is Amsterdam is literally across the street from the docks and it’s a quick ride to the airport should you need.

Thank you for confirming how I thought disembarkation would take place.  I must say this is one of the best boards on this site.  Everyone is very knowledgeable and helpful.  Thank you all again for your help and guidance.
