Default Disembarking at the end of the cruise

Hi, I will be on the Oosterdam on Feb 29, We have made flight arrangements ourselves, and now I am concerned.

The cruise internary states that we get back to Fort Laudrdale at 8am we are on our flight at 12:15. Is this enough time?
Because I just had read that you need to allow time for the ship to be cleared, Does anyone know how long it takes to get off the ship at the end of the cruise.

??

When I got off the Maasdam in November, even though my flight wasn't until 4:30, I was still off the ship by 9:15 and at the airport by 9:45. You should have plenty of time.

Just make sure you get in the security line at the airport right away and get to your gate. That line can take quite a bit of time if there are a lot of ships emptying at the same time.

Don't worry, though - you'll have plenty of time.

Bon Voyage!

Do not worry even a bit. You will have plenty of time. They disembark people according to priority. You will tell them what time your flight is and from where. Based on your time/place, you will be one of the first groups off the ship. My flight was 12:30 and I was at the airport at least 2 hours before the flight.
