Default Disembarking

On return from our cruise with the Dawn Princess we are due to berth in Sydney at 07.00. Will really appreciate posters' views on the time taken to disembark, given that we need to be at Sydney airport to catch a domestic flight at 14.40. Is a taxi the best to use for the transfer?
Is early breakfast served on this day? Any and all information gratefully received.

Thank you all in advance,
Nevl

You can do either - get the transfers from PCL or take a taxis, YES they do serve early breakfast that morning.

Nevl,
The princess disembarkation procedure is very quick and efficient. It is color coded so that those with the earlier flights are allowed off first. They will collect your luggage the night before (except for your carry on) and you will be reunited with it the next morning in the terminal. You should have more than enough time.

Yes they will serve you breakfast.

If it were me, I'd book a transfer to the airport through Princess rather than trying to get a cab.

Thank you Richstacy for your help with disembarking (back in April). Hopefully they will get us off early, as Princess Lines say I cannot book transport to the airport through them because I did not book our flights through them. It's all about avoiding responsibility for missed flights I guess - however, it may be a different story once on-board

Thanks again,
Nevl

No problem Nevl. Have a wonderful cruise. I hope New Zealand is still as wonderful and as beautiful as it was the two times we were there!
