We are returning to port on a  Sunday morning and was wondering if this would give us enough time to get to JFK for a 12:27 p.m. flight home?

Assuming you are asking about disembarking in Brooklyn (as JFK is a long way from Port Everglades :classic_cool:) these are the recommended flight times from the Princess website:

 

Disembarking Passengers
For voyages arriving in New York City, the earliest flight departures are as follows:

  • LaGuardia: 6 hours after ship's arrival for domestic flights
  • John F. Kennedy: 7 hours after ship's arrival for domestic flights
  • Newark: 7 hours after ship's arrival for domestic flights

https://www.princess.com/learn/faq_answer/pre_cruise/travel.jsp

 

But my attempting further research to find out what time your ship arrives seemed futile as not a single Canada/New England cruise in 2019 or 2020 has a Sunday turnaround in NYC. I almost gave up until finding the leg of the Sea Princess world cruise that ends on Sunday July 21 there.

 

With its arrival listed as 6 AM the earliest recommended JFK flight is 1 PM. So if you choose a 12:27 PM flight Princess will not sell you one of their transfers. So pre-booking a private car is all but essential as taxi lines are brutal in NYC. But possibly less so if you are calling in Manhattan rather than Brooklyn which the leg of a world cruise may possibly do. I could not find the 2019 NYC port schedule on the official PATH website yet but one unofficial NYC tourism site does list the port as Brooklyn. So all caveats about very slow disembarkation and very very limited ground transportation apply. In other words your flight is tight.

I would do the first group walk off with your luggage and take a car service or Uber/Lyft.

You would have to be able to carry off all your luggage without assistance. Then you would need to pre-book transport from the port to the airport. 

 

That said, you will probably be OK. But there is never any guarantee.

All the effort members put in to give JFK directions and NYC info. 

 

That said, we we just walked off our San Pedro disembarkation at about 8  AM and easily got to LAX early for a 1 PM flight by taking a taxi. We had several hours to spare.

You’ll have plenty of time for a 12:27pm flight out of LAX. LAX recommends that passengers arrive at check-in two hours before for a domestic flight, three hours before for an international flight. It’ll take between 40-60 minutes to get from the port to LAX, depending on traffic. 

 

This is the disembarkstion schedule from the Ruby two weeks ago which will give you an idea of the disembarkation times.
