I will be traveling with Princess to the Caribbean in November, I have read a number of stories about the length of time it takes passengers to clear customs is very long. One story from St. Thomas indicated that Princess has cancelled the port of call from one of the ships because it was taking over 3 hours to clear Canadian and European passengers from the ship! Does anyone have any suggestions or experiences that they could share on this. I am Canadian and will be traveling from Ft. Lauderdale to Princess Cays, St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Barbados, St. Lucia and Antigua. Even understanding the produces from the ship follow would be helpful.
We travel with friends from B.C. and have never encountered a problem. They disembark when we do. The only time a different procedure was used was at final arrival to the U.S. Then they reported to one of the lounges with their passports. Enjoy your cruise.
