Celebrity is still saying that flights should be after 10:00 am out of San Juan post cruise. Seems awfully early to me. What has everyone's experience been lately? Referring to Infinity in February. I can usr FF miles at 10:30 but am really apprehensive about making the flight.
A Friend has the return flight from the Infinity that Celebrity booked at 3 p.m. The only earlier flight for the same itinerary was 9:35 a.m. Are you a Captain's Club member? That membership will at least get you early disembarkation and since you will just get a taxi anyway, this will save you some waiting around time. Airport travel time is about 25 minutes from Pier 4.
You can get an early embarkation whether you are Captain's Club or not. Just go to the Information Desk... midway through the cruise, WITH your air tickets. They will give you an early disembarkation # which will be reflected on the tags delivered to your room during the last full day on the cruise. If the ship is on time, you should have no problem making your flight... not a lot of time to spare, but not unusual, either.
Just returned Sat. a.m. on Infinity. We had a FF flight at 10:50. Were in the first group to disembark, went to claim luggage, one piece wasn't in the right color-coded tag place, found it, still couldn't find another one at all -- which actually ended up on our plane but went on to Lubbock, TX where it was found yesterday -- so left without one piece after searching the "warehouse" for 20 minutes and making a claim, got taxi and got to the airport before the busloads did and got the plane with time to spare. They had LOTS of ticket agents on hand and stood in the snake line only about 20 minutes. Of course, there was a line out the door when we finished, but hopefully those had later flights. We could have even made an earlier one if we didn't look so long for the luggage!!
