    What is the latest time we can disembark ship on return to Port Canaveral when we sail on Fantasy in November?

    Welcome aboard, Pam! That last morning of a Disney Cruise Line vacation is always so bittersweet. Your family will have had a magical experience over the previous week, but it is then time to head home. My family always finds is hard to say goodbye that last day, so we follow Captain Mickey's lead and simply say "See Ya' Real Soon!" instead! Plus, if you have booked another Disney cruise while you've been onboard, it makes it so much easier to leave, knowing you will indeed be back soon!

    Guests must be off of the ship by 9:00 a.m. in order for the Cast Members to prepare the ship for the next guests to arrive. Let me tell you a bit about how that last morning works.

    If you've enjoyed the first dinner seating throughout your cruise, you'll be assigned a breakfast time for the last morning of around 6:45 or 7:00 a.m. Those who have had the second dinner seating will be assigned a final day breakfast time of around 8:00 or 8:15 a.m., specific times can be confirmed onboard for your exact sailing. You'll have breakfast with the same service team that's been with you at dinner each night, as a chance to say goodbye before you head off the ship. You'll dine in the same restaurant where you had dinner the night before. 

    Now, if you'd prefer, you can grab a quick bite to eat anytime that morning at Cabanas buffet instead. But, again, we really like to take that last meal to enjoy relaxing a bit more and chatting more with our fabulous servers who have always become like family by then! 

    Guests are asked to be out of their staterooms by 8:00 a.m., so bring your day bags with you to breakfast and plan to walk off the ship after that. Normally it's around 7:30 a.m. that the ship announces it's all clear for guests to begin disembarkation. 

    I hope those details give you a better idea of how that last morning onboard will work, Pam. Let me know if you have any other questions before you set sail! I'm happy to help! Have a great cruise!
