What if we misis the boat

Recommended Posts

Based on prior posts, the OP appears to be originating in Tennessee.

 

I would 100% advise the OP NOT to take a flight arriving at 2pm. 

There are way too many things that can go wrong to delay the flight, or the trip to the ship.
 

Plus, even though the ship sets sail at 5pm, you still need to be onboard well prior to that to attend the Muster Drill. I wouldn't risk anything less than an hour before (though it's possible you may be able to get on as late as 30 minutes before).

No "if" about it.  You will miss the boat.  Stress is not worth it.   Rebook flight for day prior.

I was able to change my flight for arrival at 12:35pm.  Thank you all for your help.

We have always flown in the night before however this time my husband could not get off from work an extra day.

No apology needed.  I did not like doing it this way.  Again thank you all for your guidance.  I am coming from Tennessee.  Never again will I do this, lesson learned!

That should work out great for you. Check out the sky train to get to the terminal. It is across the crossing and up a flight or two of stairs. Take it to the Waterfront Station then a block or two walk to the terminal area.

Very glad to hear you could change to an earlier flight. I would still make prior arrangements to get from the airport to the cruise terminal just to relieve that bit of stress.

You still better have a good plan B.  BTW - you have not said whether your flight is a non-stop or you have to change planes somewhere.

Just remember to call it a ship.  An easy way to remember it is a ship can carry a boat.  :classic_wink:  I agree that's a late arrival but as long as everything goes on time, you should be fine.  Just be prepared with a Plan B in case you miss it.  When we fly in on the day of embarkation, we always try to get there before 10am.  From the west coast, that means flying overnight.  To be safe, we always figure out the fastest and cheapest way to get to the next port just in case.
