My parents did a Hawaii cruise a couple years ago, flying out of Minneapolis the day of. They arrived with their party (two of mom's sisters and husbands) about 3 hours early (or more--they have been doing this since they all became senior citizens) and were offered an earlier flight which they took. Theirs was the last plane to take off from MSP that day. The other cruisers had to fly to the first port of call and join the ship two days late, the first day being an "at sea" day.

Anything can happen. As I stated before I have always flown the day of the cruise with nary a problem, but I know I have a few extra grey hair from the wondering. I will fly the day of again if the price is right.
