Default Return flight time from San Juan

We are considering a 10 AM return flight time from our San Juan cruise (cruise is March 2008 on Crown Princess). Is that too early? The "expected" arrival time is 6 AM but having been on over 20 cruises I know this is variable.

Would we (party of 4) be OK with a return flight this early? I think it would be a squeeze but it would be a good flight for our party's schedules.

Thanks!

I would say your chances of making a 10 AM flight in San Juan to be slim to none.

Anything before noon is a very risky choice of flight times.

I've always noticed that flights back from San Juan are either very early or later in the afternoon. I think at least for us flying out of O'Hare in Chicago, we take the same flights that came from Chicago for the return trip back. ITs usually very difficult to find anything around the noon time, usually by 3:00 or so, you can find them.

I would highly doubt making a 10AM flight, I just wouldn't chance that.

I have made early flights back from Florida, but honestly I would never take a chance at 10am from San Juan. My flights from there have always been at the ealiest, 1pm.....

For our cruise on the Crown Princess in November, Princess booked us on a 12:15 pm out of San Juan. I would use that as an indicator of what Princess thinks is a safe time.
