This was our case in New York in April 03, but in Jacksonville last February, we were invited to a full breakfast in the caravelle restaurant with other suite passengers and captains club members. They came before we even finished our first course and said we could depart at any time. The Jacksonville customs were apparently that much faster. Ship arrived at 6 am, we were off before 8 and at the airport by 9.
We saw some other people at the airport who said apparently everyone had disembarked by 10. The ship was entirely booked for the Jacksonville cruise, but only about 60% for the Bermuda cruise from New York.
A nice surprise from Florida, I guess.
