Getting off Victory that gets in at 7am.

It seems the Carnival Victory sails from either San Juan, Puerto Rico or
Barbados.

Many factors can affect the timely arrival and debarkation of a ship.

Perhaps after knowing which sailing you are on someone with experience at that port can say for sure.

We did this itinerary last May and had a 12:10 flight on AA. We had no problems at all. You will need to go to guest relations desk and let them know you have an early flight (take flight info with you). We did the luggage express and it worked out great. We were one of the 1st ones of the ship. At the airport by 8:30. Of course each week is different. Don't forget to go thru the agriculture security check first when you get to the airport.

You're going to love this itinerary.

When we did luggage express it was $20 per checked bag. They will put it on your S&S card. They do your boarding passes and everything and get all the docs to you on Sat night. After you get your luggage in the terminal you take it to a truck outside and then you don't see it til you get to your final destination. It sure was nice not to have to lug it around in the San Juan airport. Well worth the $$.

We had a early flight out so there wasn't that many people at the airport. The agri security we went thru was right outside of the airport. Make sure you go through there 1st before you get in line to get checked in, if you're not using the luggage express, because if you don't they will send you back out there.

I think it's a hit or miss. You just never can tell when something might happens. We missed our flight in Tampa due to bad weather. We docked three hours late.

A noon flight is not an early flight. You'll be docked and off the ship by 10am. The airport SJU is about a 10 minute ride from the ship.

Hi roynga, I usually go by what the Carnival site says about Transfers (even if we're not using them).

Here's what they say about San Juan:

What are the Flight Guidelines for the Latest Airport Arrivals and Earliest Return Flights:

Latest Flight Arrival:
Arrivals into the San Juan Airport: 8:30pm

Earliest Flight Departures:
Earliest departures out of the San Juan Airport:
12:00pm


Looks like a 12:10 flight will be fine unless there's a problem.

Have a wonderful cruise!
