In January of 200 we arrived at the air port by 3:00 PM and were on the ship by 4:00. This past March was a whole different story. Celebrity didn't even have us leaving Pittsburgh until noon and we were on the ship by 9:30 PM. however there were many other late arrivers because we didn't leave port until 1:30 AM waiting for late passengers.

Hi BuddyR,
You may want to check with your travel agent about doing a flight deviation, you can pick the airline/time etc. and get there nice and early. Also if possible when cruising out of San Juan its extra special nice to go in a day early, that way you are all rested and ready to cruise.

Here is an article written by our Tim Rubacky about air deviations that you may find interesting:

Here is also something on doing any pre/post cruise packages:

Also by doing an air deviation, you can pick flights that are more direct and would get you there earlier. Just be sure when booking the flight home, not one before 11/noon as it does take time to disembark and get to the airport, have a great cruise.

The problem with taking air deviatiion is that the cruiselines will stick you with the difference in pricing... so you are losing the benefit of their reduced air from many gateways.

San Juan loop cruises are always priced more cheaply than Ft Lauderdale loops.. because of the expensive air factor. Unless you really have your heart set on the itinerary, I would check out Millie from Ft Lauderdale... or perhaps a 10-day cruise out of Lauderdale if you have the time.

We are sailing the Panama Canal next April on the Dawn Princess. Those who are using air deviation to insure their desired flights are paying only the air deviation fee of $35 and an additional airfare of approximately $34. They will still manage to pay less than the lowest fare that they could book on their own, they are getting the flights that they want, and they know their flight arrangements, 10 months ahead of time. If the air differential had made the cost more expensive than if they booked on their own, they still had the option of booking their own air or taking a chance on whatever arrangements the cruiseline would come up with. Seems like a pretty good arrangement to me.

From Boston in Prime Cruising time (winter) we have been fortunate to always get out early and arrive by 1:30 Atlantic Time. For our next Galaxy cruise, Celebrity was very high for the airfare; $750pp apx. for November. I am booking my own plus staying a night extra after the cruise to enjoy the Isle Verde area. Looks like the present lowest fare is about $450. Keep shopping, too to find the best fare and itinerary for your travel needs.
Bon Voyage
