Default Final day and disembarkment

I'm going on a 7 nighter in Sept. depart Sat. 5pm and final arrive Sat. 8 am and I was wondering what are the big nights and how early do you/they generally get you up on the final Sat. morning for the 8 am checkout.

If the checkout is at 8am is there anything going on that Fri. nite or genrally is everyone dead by then and getting ready to leave.

Does this make Thursday the big entertainment nite??? Since Friday is just cruising through the passage....

Thanks Jaker

Although not a hard and fast rule, generally the "big" nights (formal nights) are the second night and the next to last night.
As for the last night how active it is depends on you. Most activities, shows,bars etc are open and running as usual. Some people go to bed early because they will be getting up early, some folks just don't bother to go to bed at all, The rest fall somewhere in between.
Arival time at 8 am does not mean that 5 minutes later the ship is being disembarked.
Things will start a bit earlier than usual (it will all be in your final newsletter) but there will be plenty of time for breakfast and to say goodbye to all your new friends.

Last nite of the cruise you are asked to have your luggage outside your stateroom usually by 11 or midnite. Keep your carryon with clothes and toiletries for the morning. You will have time for breakfast but it does mean that you will have to rise early. We are usually up at about 7 - 7:30 so we can eat and leisurely disembark.

from my experience the big party night is deck party night/island party night.

The last night is always " the worst night of my life". Of course, I have been known to be dramatic.

We're not far from the Port of Miami and Port Everglades, so we don't worry about, "getting up early" on disembarkation morning. So, we usually stay up 'til the wee hours. Believe me, we have plenty of company! On most ships we've been on, the casino has been open until 3:00 or 4:00 am, with plenty of players.
