Resilient Lady will dock at 6:30am at Portsmouth following a cruise from a European port.

 

From experience, would anyone please advise what is the earliest time one may expect to self-disembark, thanks.

Virgin haven’t used Portsmouth in two years so there probably won’t be many people to report back. I’ve always got off the ship a bit later so not sure myself, but I wouldn’t expect to get off any earlier than 7.30-8am. They are generally the only cruise line using Portsmouth though, so biggest external delay will be ensuring British immigration is set up if it’s a one way cruise.

No experience at Portsmouth, but at Barcelons, Miami, and Athens self disembarkation has usually started about 7:30, sometimes a tiny bit earlier.  It can be later if there are any legal or medical sailors who need to be disembarked first.  And, of course, there are always situations where the ship may arrive late.

I will need to get off at 730 also. Tottenham vs Arsenal sat sep 14th. Have rock star so should be no issue I assume. 

Rockstar won't help if there is a medical situation on board!  Normal self disembarkation will start some time between 7 and 7:30.

Piggy-backing this to ask another question about Portsmouth disembarkation: What's the earliest (safe) time to book a return flight from Heathrow?

I wouldn't attempt before 1pm.
