Embarking/Debarking Times
Quick question....we flying to Miami on a flight we booked separately. The flight arrives in Miami at 9:30AM. I know that is plenty ogf time befor 1:30 embarking time, but if we are that early, will the bus (we have the transfers) take us to the ship or will it wait for other flights to arrive? Also, will it benefit us being that we might arrive to the ship really early?
Also, coming home we have a 5PM flight. IAgain, I knwo that is plenty of time once we get off the ship (maybe too much time), but how long do you think it will take between getting off the ship and gettign to the bus and to Miami Airport? Thanks
Carnival Triumph baby...It's finally here (Saturday). I can't wait to get the hell out of here and get away from work!

Congratulations on your cruise John.

You will be able to get to the ship early enough to board before the stated 1:30 embarking time. We usually get there about 11:30 -12:00 and can get checked in and onto the ship. If you wait until 1:30 the lines will be long. Besides, my favorite time of the whole cruise is dropping off the carry on luggage in the room and proceeding immediately to the Lido deck to get a big fat juicy cheeseburger and fries and a cold beer and sitting by the pool listening to the calypso band.

You will debark by 10:00 a.m. It could be as early as 8:00 a.m. too. Getting your luggage and transportation to the airport might be close to an hour.

Have a great cruise.
