Default How long to disembark in ports?

We're set to be in St Thomas from 7-5:30. I've book Godfrey for our day. He needs to know when to pick us up, 9, 10, or 11 am? Since this won't be a Carnival excursion will we have to wait a long time to disembark? Any idea when you'd say we should tell Godfrey to pick us up? TIA!

i would go for the 10am tour just to be on the safe side. It all depends upon how long it takes you to clear customs. Go to the purser's office once you board and tell them that you have a 10am tour, and they will try to get you on the early call to go thru immigration.

If you are scheduled to arrive at 7, I would think by 9 you would be free to get off the ship, in most cases you be at the pier, unless there are a lot of ship in port that day.

I agree with Donna- If your ship gets in at 7AM unless something very unusual happens
you should have no difficulty getting off the ship by 9AM. In my experience (unless tendering is involved or the ship's arrival is delayed ) you can pretty much count on being able to get off the ship within about one hour of docking.

We had him pick us up @ 0900 & it was perfect.
