Default disembark time in Seattle

I booked an Alaska cruise this summer that returns to Seattle at 7am. Latest flight I could get on SW Air on a Saturday to home was 10:45 am. (their fight schedule on Sat is terrible). What is usual time frame to be off of ship to taxi line if arrive at port at 7am. Will I miss my flight if I can be in early group to leave under new disembark plan on Princess?

We too had the same flight out of Seattle last fall. 10:45 a.m.is cutting it pretty close, but we did it. We were lucky and breezed through customs. Notify the purser that you have an early flight (before 11:00 a.m.) and need to disembark in the first group. We did that the day before we arrived in Seattle. We also made arrangements to have a town car service pick us up at the port and drive us to the airport. I'm guessing the cost was around $40. You might check it out and get a few quotes on line to compare cost of this service vs. taxi service. Cabs are also available. Shuttle service might not be the best choice in your situation. The shuttle doesn't leave for the airport unless it's full. Planning ahead ... and you should be fine.

Enjoy Alaska. It's magnificent!

Princess doesn't recommend domestic flights before 12 noon and international flights before 1PM . If customs delays clearing the ship , you might actually not get off the ship before 8AM .
