Default Carnival Pride - Debarkation Time?

Does anybody know what time they start letting you off the Pride in Long Beach. We have a 11:18 am flight and we're worried we may not make it in time.

Figure about 9 a.m. because you have an air flight.

Even if debarkation goes off in a timely manner I think you'll have a hard time making a flight this early. I'd recommend doing whatever possible to find a flight after 12 noon.

Corinne, disembarkation even with Early Disembarkation Tags (Grey) was very slow. We met in the TajMahal theater as instructed for 7:45 a.m. Actual start for early flights by time of flights starting at 10 a.m. did not start until 8:15 a.m. Then the line just stopped! No direction, no Carnival staff member leading the group! Finally after a passenger went to get someone, the line moved off ship 25 people at a time. You go through disembarkation of the ship using your Sign & Sail Card. You go through Customs (there were about 8 long lines), then you find your luggage. Now if you don't need a Porter, you can leave but if you do, you have to wait again as there aren't that many and the terminal is small. If you are flying from Long Beach airport it is only a 10 minute ride and you will be OK. We had a 9 a.m. reservation for Prime Time shuttle, we got on the van at 8:55 a.m. and were on the road to LB by 9 a.m. Problem, we were flying from LAX! They fill the van and get their monies worth! We had a 12:40 p.m. flight, so there were no issues.
Bon Voyage

Corinne, I just got off this ship on Sunday the 27th. We were with the VIP, grey tags, and early flight group. I was flagging a cab down outside the terminal at 8:30am. We were at LAX by 9:15am and left on our flight at 11:05am. Keep in mine we did all this on one of busiest travel days of the year. I say go for it, don't change your flight, don't worry about it and have a great time. Also, if your flight is out of Long Beach Airport you'll have even more time. Let the ship know about your early flight when you get on and they'll get you off early..

Have a great time. Scott
