You can wait until the last color. We did this when we left with some friends who were the last ones to be called. It was actually quite easy. Fewer bags to go through.

You may want to be careful if you are departing in Miami. Your bags may be pulled off of the baggage carousel and put off to the side.

Take care,
Mike

When it says arrival time is 8am, is that the time we pull in or the time they estimate customs will clear us?
We are leaving and coming back to Long Beach CA, figure will call Dad once the first color is called and hopes he makes good time.
If I dont get off when my color is called, will I hold up the other colors being called?
I would rather wait on the ship instead of outside at the pier, especially with my young daughter.

Tia:
You can get off anytime after your color has been called.

Have fun and I hope dad or you don't have to wait.
Mike

Hi,

When your color code is called.
Otherwise, it causes problems for others, and your luggage
Cheers

Tia - 8am is the time your ship pulls into port. You can get "last call" baggage tags, just go to the Purser's Office and ask for them, saves lots of time and confusion
