I always have too much luggage and it was a nightmare lugging it. Plus I usually cruise out of drive to ports so I'm not in a hurry to get off the ship. I go have breakfast then take a leisurely shower in the cabin. I'm usually still in the cabin to at least 9am.
The VIP debarkation waiting area has been an issue on some of the ships. I should say the lack of instruction/notification given. It is an issue that is being addressed. I'm sure LHP has some comments about this as well.
