Default key west - at night

Quick question...

My family and I are going on the March 27th sailing of the Norwegian Majesty. My brother, who lives in Fla, told me no cruise ships were allowed to be in port past sunset. However, our itinerary has us getting in at 3:00pm and leaving at 10:00pm. I'm pretty sure he must be mistaken but would like some confermation. Has anyone been on a cruise at Key West that has left after sunset???

Our Key West has always been during the day - call your cruise line and double check.

Was on Rhapsody in 2002. Arrived in Key West @ 3:00PM left the following morning @ 7:00A.M. Hope this helps.

Interesting. I guess they've relaxed a bit - they never used to let cruiseships block the sunset, since sunset is a big deal at Mallory Square, with the street performers & all...

Or maybe some ships dock at a different spot, enabling them to stay longer?

We docked near Mallory Square, but the ships didn't seem to block anything.

If you are going to be in Key West at night w/ kids, be aware that they do not have laws against public nudity as long as the people are wearing body paint . I'm not too sure I'd want to see that with you kids I had to explain it to.

There are quite a few cruises that dock there at night. During the Fantasy Fest there are cruise ships in port. Maybe it used to be the case, although we docked there over night 2 years ago.
