Everybody has given very good advice, and I just went through this. I wouldn't normally schedule so tight but it was Christmas Eve and wanted to get home early for service. ONE....you can't do anything about the ship and any custom problems that may occur, so that you can't do anything about. TWO, go online and find the flights that are leaving later, so you will be prepared just in case(kind of like bringing an umbrella, so it never rains). THREE...check in for your flight on-line if this is available to you at the internet cafe on the ship the day before. You will have boarding passes in hand. FOUR...fill out the paperwork the ship provides you and make sure at the Guest Relations you get early tickets off the ship. FIVE...get up early, have a good breakfast, and have your luggage under control. I do not believe you need to carry off all your own luggage, the ship organizes your luggage, and it gets off the ship before you can. SIX...take a cab or schedule a shuttle that it not going to wait for other passengers. LAST...breathe and enjoy your trip, I had my Mom and had to wait for a wheelchair, and hundreds passed us by getting off the ship, but we got to the airport just as the doors were closing for the 9:15am flight, so we waited another hour and a half and got right on our flight this included getting wheelchair help at the airport also.
You have scheduled tight, but it can work.
