Default What time is your flight home??

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

If you arrive early, check with your airline about standing by for an earlier flight.....as long as they don't charge you for the effort.

We've been lucky and arrived at the airport in time to take a 930a flight! The other time it was an 11:00a flight (missed the 930a by minutes). Port is very close to the airport.

When you get to the airport, you can always ask to see if you can get on the earlier one if seats are still available. I did that once and it was wonderful.
