This is my third cruise but my first cruise with RCI. My 2 previous cruises were with Carnival and I am wondering if disembarkment(specifically clearing customs) is different on RCI. AS a Canadian citizen we had to get up at 6:30am on the last morning and wait in line to clear customs while still on board the ship. When we left the ship at 8:30 we noticed that the American passengers cleared customs after they left the ship. We are on a 3 day cruise to the Bahamas so Key West is not on our itinerary. (I have read some stories about that customs experience.) I am travelling with my 11 year old daughter so I would just like to manage her expectations about what time we have to get up our last morning!
