Default Return Flight..don't know what to do!

I am o the Repositioning cruise on 10/28 on the Jewel. We had booked a 12:15 from Miami....well...today I found out that they changed the flight to 11:02. I am very concerned since the only other flight out that day is at 6:00 and that is full!!!! My travel agent seems to think we can make it....any thoughts?

Your ship should offer an early walk off, as soon as the has cleared you can walk off with all your bags, go thru customs and out the door to a taxi.
A taxi ride to Miami airport is about 20 / 25 min. and costs $25.50 it did 10/10/08 when we left.
Explain everything to them on the ship and maybe you can be waiting on deck at the exit when it is cleared.
Don't worry yourself sick and not enjoy your cruise.
Off the ship 8:30-9:00 at the airport 9:30 you should be fine.

Have a good time

Drew's idea of the walkoff is a good one if you do not have much luggage, but if you do, it is unfair to other passengers if you are lugging too much stuff plus a pain to you. The last day you can pick up luggage tags that will get you off asap. Assuming you clear customs fast (whcih the ship should) you will be just fine. Although I recommend no one get a return flight before noon you are talking about a few minutes. I think you will be just fine. You should be at the airport by 10am or 10:30 at the latest I would guess.

We just returned to Miami on the NCL Sky on Friday Nov 7th., which was supposed to dock at 8:00 AM. We had an 11:11 AM flight.

We did the express walk-off and were off the ship at 7:45! At the airport at 8:15 - 8:30 with loads of time to spare. No worry Mon:-)

Have a great time!
