Default travel time

how long does it take to get to the pier from the Tampa Airport?

I was told 54 minutes, is this true?

Also, how early can you board the ship? I had to change my flight itenirary to allow more time and now I will be arriving at the airport 2 hours earlier than my original schedule..

It took us 15-20 min, but that was without any traffic to speak of. We got there about noon to board. The line wasn't long but we then had to wait in a big room for a couple of hours. The ship got in late and the passengers from the previous week were just getting off the ship at noon.

Under normal circumstances,if disembarkation went well and on
time that morning, checkin process can start as early as noon-ish....
Since lines at that time are never very long,it's a swift process and you
could be on board before 1.00-ish and have lunch on the Lido deck !!!


p.s. good move to change your inbound flight.....
