Dublin - earliest you can get off the ship

Recommended Posts

Ship arrives back into Dublin at 2:45m.  I was told by celebrity that customs comes on board at 5am. I was wondering if anyone has taking this cruise and how early you were able to walk off.  Trying to plan flight time back to US.  Thanks.

We haven’t ended a cruise in Dublin, but the earliest that I had seen debarkation start in any port is 6:30- 7 am, that was for those carrying their own luggage off.

Keep in mind that if you are flying home to the US from Dublin, you have additional procedures to go through once you arrive at the airport.  This is completely separate from any immigration/customs procedures that you go through as part of the ship disembarkation process.

Dublin is one of a handful of places where US-bound travelers clear US immigration and customs at the departing airport, rather than upon arrival on US soil, so you will need to allow time for that above and beyond the usual time for check-in/bag check and security clearance.

if customs arrive at 5am then you should be able to leave shortly after that. We were on a TA and cleared customs prior to arriving in Dublin. They boarded before we arrived in Ireland. 

Keep in mind that US citizens are required to be at the airport about 3 hours prior to flight time and there will be many doing the same as you.
