On my last cruise (out of Tampa) we were to dock at 8:00 a.m. Our flight out was at 4:15 p.m.. We decided that we would do a tour of the aquarium to eat up some of the time. Well, there was a problem and the ship didn't dock until about noon and customs didn't clear us until about 2:00 p.m. Needless to say we were glad to have a late afternoon flight! I wouldn't book anything before early afternoon (1:30 or later) as you never know what may happen and I would hate to miss my flight. We came in on a Sunday and people were on their cell phones trying to make new flight arrangements. While most were able to get flights home on Monday, there were some that couldn't get them until Tuesday or Wednesday. Better to spend several hours waiting around an airport rather then several days.
