We went on the same cruise that returned the 17th. Just curious how your embarkation went. Our disembarkation was a nightmare. It was pouring down rain, and after going through customs, everyone had to go outside to wait for their transportation. There is only so much covered area outside the terminal building. No room under cover, so our bags, along with hundreds of others were dumped out in the rain. People were fighting over cabs and blocking traffic lanes trying to stop cabs. Some people who had transfers to the airport, through Celebrity, were told that one of the buses had broken down and they would have to wait for another. Some buses that had already taken a load of people to the airport did not return as scheduled and many, many people were missing flights. Traffic from the parking lots was horrendous. It took about 40 minutes to get from the terminal to the parking lot and back. No wonder...there were two other ships there. In the meantime, my wife and our luggage stood in the rain. We got off the ship 30 minutes later than scheduled, at about 10:30, and didn't leave the terminal until about 12:30.
