We heard that there were 2 other flights even later than ours and we finally sailed at 6:30.
Wow, f-mattox, I'm surprised they waited for those flights. Maybe because the flights were booked through them. On my last cruise, I thought I heard on the walkie-talkies that the RCI airport personnel had that a flight that was supposed to get in around 10:00 am was delayed until 1:15, and this was a 4:30 ship departure from Port Canaveral. We sailed on time, but I did see at our second port (Jamaica) that people with suitcases were headed towards the ship as we were going ashore for the day.
