Disembark Time

Recommended Posts

I have been on a number of cruises but most of the time we walk off early with our suitcases.   About 10 of us are taking a cruise in October out of San Pedro.   Our shuttle does not pick us up until noon that day.    What is the latest time you can disembark the ship?

We look at the notice they send us about our disembark time, and note the latest group. Other than that, they will kick you off when it your time!

Usually, the latest you can hope to be off is about 9:30am.  They really try to get everyone off before then.  I think 10:00am is the latest I've seen and remember, you have to be out of your cabin by 8:00am.  Can't you get your shuttle for an earlier time?  You're going to have A LOT of time to waste just standing around with your luggage.

The problem with that is that they usually are WAY ahead of the printed schedule with disembarkation times in LA.

See if you can change your shuttle time to between 9 and 10 otherwise you will be standing, no chairs, around for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Look into Super Shuttle. They will have vans right at the port. They also have private group service.

The reason they want you off of the ship is because they cannot begin putting people onto the ship until ALL of the passengers who have been sailing on the last cruise have been processed off of the ship (the ship has gone to "zero count") and that includes all of the people who are doing back-to-back cruises. All it take to hold up embarking passengers is one person who is "somewhere" on the ship.
