Default After cruise from Tampa, time for Busch Gardens?

We are cruising (for the first time!!!) on Carnival's Sensation departing Aug 7 and arriving back Aug 11, and our information says that we arrive at Port at 8:00 am.
How soon do we have to be off the boat? Does it depend on what deck we are on?
We currently have planned to go to Busch Gardens the Friday before our cruise, but I was wondering if it would work to plan it for that Wednesday when we arrive back into port? Probably not since if we go to BG, we would like to be there from open to close, and I am assuming a 10am open time.

I found out from my TA not to really plan that sort of thint since we might not be able to be off the ship until 10 or 11 am. Busch Gardens opens at 9:30 and closes at 6 when we will be in port, so I don't want to cut it short after spending the extra $$ on tickets. We will go the day before we cruise to insure we have a whole day there. Check Busch Gardens web site for park hours when you'll be there.

We're cruising out of Tampa on the Inspiration in March and we're getting Busch Gardens tickets and driving down that Friday night and staying over 2 nights (cruise leaves on Sunday) then we'll have the whole saturday at Busch Gardens. If you have AAA then you can get the Amerisuites at Busch Gardens for 63/night which is good considering it includes free breakfast and you get a 2 room suite. I can't wait!!!
