Cruising on Glory Sat Aug 20. I just found our originally scheduled return flight on Saturday 8/27 for 2:30 PM from Orlando airport was changed to a 12:30 PM departure time. We are a group of 5 with 10 pieces of luggage and are renting a car at the port just to drive to the airport and will drop it off there. Is it possible to get our luggage at the port terminal, pick up the car, get to the airport with our luggage, return the car and still make a 12:30 PM flight? Thanks for your help.
I live in Orlando and did the Glory last year. We were back in Orlando by 10:30am. Talk to someone at the purser's desk and let them know of your flight time and see if you can't get early debarkation.
Do let the purser's desk know. I don't know what the cut-off is for allowing early debarkation. You might want to rethink the car rental option; that might take too much time (you never know, sometimes, there aren't any lines to rent/drop off, sometimes you have to wait). You might just want to get a taxi or airport transfer (bus).
I agree with taking the transfers...When we did the Glory, we took the ships transfers and we got to the airport by 10:30am. We were on the 2nd bus out. They will give you a questionnaire to fill out regarding your flight home, then give you the correct luggage tags for early debarkation.
