So our ship leaves at 5pm so that rule should apply right? We are arriving the day before in FLL and will have the whole day to carry around our bags and hang out at port. What do people usually do with their bags while they are waiting most of the day?

also when we disembark @ 7:00 am we booked a later flight just in case 5pm. can we send our luggage to the airport ahead of time or are we stuck dragging them around again? We are going on the Star Princess, if that helps.
