Default Docking time for Spirit in Miami after 9 day Southern

I know the documents say 12:00 noon and to allow at least 2 hours after docking. Is this true and what time do you generally get off the ship. I am being picked up I need to tell folks when to be there.

Thanks in advance,

All depends on your cruise. Ours returned at about 10:30 and passengers started disembarking about 1:30. A major holdup is people doing back to back on the next 5 day cruise. all non US citizens have to report to immigration and you always get one or two who think that because they are staying on the ship they do not have to report.

I just received my docs for an upcoming 5 dy Spirit cruise and it states that embarkation starts at 4pm. I plan on being there about 3pm because often the ship starts boarding earlier than an advertised time.

We were on the Dec. 3 sailing. We arrived in Miami between 9-10 but got off the ship between 1-2. It was a very smooth debarkation process, especially when we really didn't want to get off.

This past weekend we arrived in Miami at 11:00, got off the ship around 1:30 - we were at the airport at 2:00.
