    i am going to carry my own luggage ( one small bag on wheels, and a backpack) off the ship myself. i am wondering if i will make it to the vancouver airport in time for my flight back at 12 o'clock? we are suppose to get back in port at 7:30 a.m. i have heard sometimes it takes a while for them to let passengers off the ship and i know security will be tight at the airport. when you carry your own bags off are you allowed to get off as soon as they anounce you can?? thanks for any advice. dusty

    I sure hope so because we have a 12:00 noon flight also. From what I've read on the cruise critic Alaska boards if we notify the ship about our early flight they will accommodate us and we should be in the first group of passengers disembarking. I'm trying to arrange to have a car waiting for us to take us straight to the airport. That would save time trying to get a cab. Good luck.

    Shud be no problem at all if you get off the ship in decent time. All sorts of transportation and cabs right there.

    thanks BSeabob

    i had thought my flight out of vancouver would be cutting it pretty close. im glad to know there will be plenty of cabs available. do you know, since i am carrying my own luggage off, do i still have to let the purser know, or can i just get off without having to let them know the night before. dusty

    I would let them know anyways so you can get in the earlier call-up group.

    When I was there last year-- the airport and the ships worked together--- mandated I think---- ? you got off the ship according to your flight time-----so that there wouldnt be a jam up at the airport------ worked very well too-----
    Should be no problem at all--

    I doubt you'll have a problem. You disembark based on your flight times. (So the people living in Vancouver stay on last!!)
    Even if you didn't carry your luggage, it'd be no problem. Everything's really organized and efficient.
    In Seattle, we docked at 7A, I was one of the last ones off, at 9:45A, and I was at the airport at 11:00A.
    I overheard a crew member telling someone else that everyone had to be off the ship by 10:15A.
    Hope those times are helpful.
