Is Early Walkoff Possible?

Recommended Posts

Our April 13 Pursuit Barcelona to Monte Carlo cruise arrives in Monte Carlo at 7:00 pm on April 19, the night before disembarkation.  Will it be possible to do a walkoff at 7:00 am April 20, the next day? I'm assuming the ship has to be cleared the day before to permit  people to go ashore in Monaco in the evening. We want to be able to fly out of Nice at 9:30am.

Generally, yes, as long as you notify Guest Relations in advance.  We walked off very early (5:30 am!) in Puntarenas in order to catch an early flight home.

Always check with shoreside there’s a difference between immigration clearance and customs clearance. Currently on a cruise ending in Lima arriving the day before and I’m hearing the late night departures are causing some logistical challenges

Only done it once in Dubai. But I have two more planned. One on AZ.  All the  AA flights  seem to leave late night.  I am sorry for the guests on ship. But when flights to the states  leave late or arrive late guests do not always want the extra time on ship.

In May we walked off the Quest in Nice at 5 am to catch an early flight at the Nice airport.   It was very easy and went smoothly.  We notified passenger services a few days before and it seemed to be a common request.  We had a driver waiting France-transfers.com and the trip to the airport went very quickly as there was no traffic whatsoever.  There is a decent lounge that accepts Priority Pass at the Nice airport if you have time.

Left the ship at 9 PM to catch a 1 AM flight to the states in Lima.  The Pursuit concierge Geeta arranged a private car and escort to the airline check-in desk.  Not cheap but trouble free, and safe.
