Hi, can someone help with this question. I will be returning from the Pride on Jan. 12 Port Canaveral and have a 12:35P flight out of Orlando. The Pride is scheduled to dock at 7AM should this allow enough time to get back to the airport and make the flight with the higher security at both the cruise port and airport? I hope so!
If you stay with this flight then make sure that you contact the purser and get the special debarkation tags that let you be one of the first off the ship. What you do is go to the purser on the second day (they are usually packed on the first day) with your airline tickets in hand. Tell them you have an early flight and would like to be part of the group getting off first. They usually give you a special color tag to put on your luggage (it was grey on my last cruise) and you are the first group off after the ship has been cleared to disembark.
I appreciate the replies and since posting this message I called my TA, US Airways, & Carnival direct. All agreed that I should make a 12:35 flight without a problem. I will get the tags for early disembarkation to be on the safe side in any event. Thanks!
Thanks for the replies, but decided to just go with what I have booked and hope for the best. Can change to a later flight for $100 change fee, but doesn't seem worth it? Not going to STRESS OUT over this...will enjoy the cruise and deal with a possible missed flight if and when that time comes!
