The Island Princess docks in LA at 0700. I have a 1315 flight from LAX to LAS. There were earlier flights, but I thought that 1100 was too tight.
SS Norway (12 times) '85 - '97; Radiance OS 06/01; Island Princess 11/04, Grand Princess 11/04/05, Golden Princess 7/21/06, Golden Princess 2/24/07, Explorer of the Seas 12/23/07, Island Princess 11/15/08
I booked a flight for 2:40 p.m. out of Miami. Majesty docks in Miami at 7 a.m.
12:25 p.m. flight seemed kinda risky.
I'm pretty sure this is ok.
The 2:40pm is just fine, the 12:25pm would've been fine as well. Here are the guidelines I use:
Miami: flights after noon are ok
Fort Lauderdale: flights after 11am are ok
LA: flights after noon are ok
Just my opinion after flying into and out of these airports on cruises a few times.
Majesty of the Seas - 10/03 & 02/07 & 11/08
Enchantment of the Seas - 10/04 & 10/11
Mariner of the Seas - 10/05
Vision of the Seas - 10/06 & 09/07
Carnival Liberty - 10/07
Adventure of the Seas - 9/08
Ruby Princess - 12/09
Voyager of the Seas - 9/10
Carnival Spirit - 11/10
Oasis of the Seas - 9/13
The early flight would have worked, but now, just stay onboard for as long as they will allow....eat breakfast, sit by the pool, and then walk into the terminal and spot your luggage sitting all alone, waiting for you!
Trip, with her book & tea!

I have booked the 11:55 am Miami flight. Always had between 2pm and 3pm flight however always had to wait a few hours at the airport.
I'll see how the noon flight works I hope nothing goes wrong and I miss that flight.
