How early can you leave the ship in Abu Dhabi?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at a Costa cruise that arrives in Abu Dhabi at 11.00 am and you actually leave the ship the following morning.     Is a flight at 9.15 am that morning  too early or do they let you off when ever you want?  I assume we would need to be at the airport by at least 7.00 am.? Would our luggage be released by 6.30 am or earlier by Customs?

Well this is a new one on me, but I think you should be able to leave the ship early morning if Custom's & Immigration have finished all their checks, you may have to take your own luggage ashore with you  so keep it in the cabin. This is because it may not be in arrivals hall quite that early & don't forget to book a taxi transfer.


You will also need to inform reception the day before so they are aware of your early flight & departure time next morning.

OK, thanks for the reply.  I know in Buenos Aires the last cruise we were on, the Customs folk did not show up till 8.00 am or later so we could not leave prior to that. 

I may keep looking for a later flight just to be safe.
