Default departure time

We need to book a flight from Tampa. What is the earliest time you would make your flight home? We dont have the time to spend the night in Tampa.

Thanks,

They usually tell you to look to after 12 noon to book a flight.

Melissa:

When we cruised in April there was a problem and we couldn't get into the channel. We were supposed to dock at 8:00 a.m., but didn't dock until around noon. It was about 2:00 p.m. before customs cleared the ship. Luckily, we didn't have a flight out until 4:15 p.m.. We just made it. There were a lot of people with earlier flights that had to rebook. Most of the ones around us were able to get out the next day (Monday), but others couldn't get a flight home until Tuesday, and for one family it was Wednesday. When I sail in August I booked my flight home for 7:00 p.m.. When we sailed in April 2004 we didn't have any problems, but with what just happened to me, I would never book any flight out of Tampa until late afternoon or early evening. The aquarium next door has facilities to hold your luggage if you get in on time and don't want to hang out at the airport. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
