We just got notification that the Voyager will be departing Cape Liberty this summer at 5pm, instead of 10pm. We will be taking a RCCL bus from Pennsylvania, and thought that since the ship is leaving 5 hours earlier, the bus would be picking us up earlier too. But according to RCCL, there is no change is time for bus pick up, and therefore we will not get to the ship until about 3:30. Has anyone had any experience with these buses...do they usually pick up on time? Just worried that if the bus runs in to traffic or some sort of other problem, it is going to be very close to departure time when we arrive. RCCL assures me that the bus is in contact with the ship...but the whole thing makes me very nervous. Any thoughts?
Since it is a RCCL sponsored bus, the ship won't leave without you. You will feel rushed and it's not a relaxing way to start a vacation. I'd check into arriving the day before and spending the night, getting a good nights rest and then you won't be nervous.
