Never again for us!!! Last year Our connecting flight was delayed due to an airport security problem. We made it to the ship at 6:00 pm which was sailing time. We were the last people to board ship and we had to actually run across a gang plank to make it. The ship started moving within seconds of our boarding. It was exciting to say the least.
It was also very stressful . I thought our family vacation that we had planned and saved for was going to be ruined.
My suggestion is go the day before and stay at a hotel or motel close to the port. This will eliminate the worry off possibly "missing the boat"
By the way, we are booked for this year and are arriving the day before and also staying the day after.
