Default What is the earliest flight I can catch?

We will be sailing on the Golden this September. How early can I expect to be at the airport the day we disembark in San Juan? I can get a good rate on a 10:45am flight, but I'm araid that it might be too early.

Have your agent check with Princess for the earliest flight time out of San Juan.

Gummy Bear , Do no even attempt any earlier than 12:00n. I went out of San Juan in January and we go out at least twice a year from there. In January we got to the airport after disembarkment by around 10:30am. Security checkin takes about 15-20min depending on how fast they feel like moving that day. Sorry bout that, but it really is'nt enough time...Carol

It took us a good 30 minutes to make it through the airline check-in in May. I've heard some disembarkations are happening later. We went on an excursion, so we were off the ship earlier. Someone behind me at the airport had the same color luggage tags I had (Emerald and Plaza deck) and they did not get to disembark until 10:45am.

I would not chance that early a flight.

WE JUST CAME OFF THE GOLDEN ON JUNE 6 AND THE SAN JUAN AIRPORT WAS CHAOTIC! WE HAD A 12:30PM FLIGHT AND GOT TO THE AIRPORT AROUND 9:30AM. WITH ALL OF THE LINES AND SECURITY I WOULD NOT EVEN CHANCE AN EARLIER FLIGHT. IT TOOK US ABOUT AN HOUR AND 45 MINUTES TO FULLY CHECK IN FOR OUR FLIGHT.

Thanks for the advice y'all. We decided not to risk an early flight and instead chose to stay over in San Juan until Monday. I was able to get 4 tickets on AA from Atlanta of only $230 each on Cheaptickets.com.

good choice Bernie. San Juan airport is a total zoo on disembarkation day.

Oooh...really good deal on those tickets, Bernie! I think you made a great choice, and there's nothing better than getting off of a cruise ship on a weekend and NOT dealing with the chaos at the San Juan airport! You'll have a chance to just chill and relax at your hotel, re-pack, get your brain working again, and be fresh on Monday morning. I've flown in and out of San Juan for cruises, and it is just awful on saturdays and Sundays!
