Hi lasmile57, welcome to Cruise-Chat. You are definitely taking a chance. If you can change it, you need to do so. If everything goes perfectly smooth, you could possibly make it. If you do self-disembark, customs clears the ship, there are no hold-ups getting through customs, there is no traffic problems, then yes you could make your flight. To do self-disembark, you must be able to take off all of your luggage by yourself, no assistance from anyone. If the ship gets back into port and docked by 6-7am, and there is no problem with customs/immigration, they could possibly clear the ship by 7:30-8. Then they will call for the self-debark passengers. You will have to gather your luggage and go through customs. If you don't get searched or have to pay duty, that should take about 30-45 minutes. Then you need to grab a cab and pray that traffic is good. It's only about a 30 minute drive to the airport, but if there's an accident or if it's rush hour, that could be much more. I wouldn't want you to end a really nice vacation by having to rush around and be stressed out. Please try to change your flight to an afternoon depature. Best wishes and once again, welcome aboard!
