Default question about disembarking

It is surely getting close to the big day.....Aug 9 on Enchantment of the Seas.
We are all very excited.
It says we get back to Ft Lauderdale at 6 or 6:30 AM. What time is 'checkout'?
also
Can you take your own luggage on and off vs. checking it?
Thanks.
Pat

The cabin stewards would like you out of the cabin early so they can prep for the next cruise. You can hang out in the cabin until 0800 or so.

You can walk your own luggage off. Don't expect any help, you are on your own.

Normally, they will request that you be out of your stateroom prior to 8am.
You can carry your luggage off the ship (rather than putting it out the night before for them to handle). You might need to check at the Customer Service desk to sign up for this. By carrying your own luggage off, you will be the first group to disembark.

As far as carrying your luggage on....it will need to fit into the x-ray machine (just as at an airport) so if it is quite large and will not fit through the machine they will probably not allow you to carry it on yourself.

We have been on 5 cruises and everyone has offered its passengers to carry off their own luggage.
They usually announce the time to leave the ship the night before. Most times is around 8am or after. Don't get in any hurry, it don't pay. Just sit back and eat breakfast.
Enjoy....

Since I drive I do the self debarkation. Lot's of people use it now so it does get busy. If your in no hurry or taking a flight just stay on board and chill.

Enjoy the cruise, just a few more days!!

If the ship isn't delayed, they'll be calling for those guests who choose self assist (you have to carry ALL your own luggage off) by 7:30 AM.

They also limit the time available for self assist. They'll announce the self assist times in the disembarkation information, but it's likely that the it won't be later than 8 AM or so.

So, if you want to do "self assist" be prepared to get off early.

I usually stay over one night after a cruise in the port cityso taking my time getting off the ship and enjoying those last few moments aboard is always fun. Bob
