    Kimberly, what time do the cruises leave port and return back? I am trying to pick flight times and need to know these times.Thanks so much

    Hi Sandra,
    If you look under the Itineraries section of each cruise, you will see the Embarkation and Disembarkation times for passengers.

    For example, the 3 night cruise to the Bahamas lists 4:00 p.m. as the time that all guests must be onboard.

    Typically, guests are allowed ashore between 7:45 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. upon the return to Port Canaveral.  I would book a return flight for later than 12:30 p.m. to allow time to clear customs and the one  hour drive back to the airport.

    Can travel delays occur? Yes. I've experienced canceled flights, traffic jams and weather delays.

    My family always flies in the night prior to a cruise. I would recommend arriving the Orlando International Airport no later than 1:30 p.m. on your sailing date. While the ride to the Port only takes an hour, there are so many travel delays that can occur and I wouldn't want that "When You Wish Upon A Star" whistle going off without your family onboard!
