This was my first cruise where the "self-assist" program was available for disembarkation. My original plan was to have the luggage outside the door the night before and pick it up in the lugagge holding area after exiting the ship, then going to the theater after breakfast where the early flight passengers meet for disembarkation. Would have worked great that way BUT NO! One of our group members went to the disembarkation talk which said if we had a flight before 1:00, self-assist was the only way to get there. Why argue, right? Our floor was called about 8:15 and it was 9:30 before we were outside the port building. On the way out, I peeked in the theater and it was empty. THEY GOT OFF FIRST and didn't have to carry any of their own luggage. LONG STORY SHORT - DONT TRY THE SELF ASSIST! I never will again for sure. Someone is really going to wind up getting hurt in this awkward procedure. If they could/would enforce the floors being called, it might work better but in reality - it was a free-for-all.
