Disembarking a Cruise Ship

It's Cruise Ship Saturday! Today we're talking about disembarkation.

The morning you leave the ship - disembark - can be hectic. It's not like just checking out of a hotel room so remember to read the paperwork delivered to your cabin beforehand. It tells you everything you need to know.

Here is a sample of the info-packed paperwork from a recent cruise. The link in Google docs can be found HERE.

Remember to:
  • Pack your patience along with your carry-on.
  • Keep medications and documentation with you.
  • Remove items from the safe.
  • Be out of the cabin when requested.
  • Enjoy the last of the cruise ship meals.
  • Wait in a nice location before going to the assigned lounge.
  • Have your cruise card ready for scanning.
  • Collect your luggage in the terminal.
  • Have passports ready for customs.
  • Be on time for arranged transportation and allow plenty of time to get to the airport.
And then start planning for your next cruise!
