Hello All,

We have a cruise booked for late April-May this year. One thing we are wondering is when the ship returns/docks at 7AM the last day, how long does it usually take to disembark?

We are booked on cabin level E1.

Thanks in advance!

We were at the Ft. Lauderdale airport (docked in Miami) by 9:30 AM. I think we got in line to leave the ship close to 8:00. For us, it was a very easy and speedy process.

Winter storms kept us at FLL until 6:30 PM but that's another story.

it is less than an hour ! We were off the boat faster than our luggage was, waiting for the luggage was the longest part. Customs was very fast, it was sad to see the boat when we were outside next to it. so sad!
