Can we take our own luggage off the ship when it docks? It would save us time as we're taking a cab to the airport. Let me know...Thanks

deanie....i just came off the conquest this past sunday and we carried off our own luggage. it's called self-assist. you are the first to depart the ship. ours started at 7am by floors and we were on the rivera deck which is deck 1 and we were last and we were called at 725am and we were off the ship and through customs by 745am.......i highly recommend doing this unless someone else can say they have had fun waiting til 9am, 10am or later in lines then wandering around 10,000 peices of luggage looking for yours.......good luck and enjoy!!!

I always carry my luggage off of a ship. It makes it so much easier to debark and you can usually be one of the first ones off.

Thank you for the info. Yes, we will take our own luggage off. Are there cabs available at the Tampa port to take us to the airport? Leaving this Sunday for the Western Caribbean, not sure about Cozumel. Going on Carnival Miracle...we usually do Celebrity, so this will be different & fun we hope. Thanks...

Hi Fran...I beleive we are still going to Cozumel so I'll let you know how it goes. I know one of their piers was destroyed, so we'll see. I'm sure by the time you go there will be no problem We'll be home on the 20th ..LATE! Flying from Boston a day early so we can relax & not rush. Our last cruise we left early & went right to the ship. We were EXHAUSTED that night, so this will be nice. I haven't cruised with Carnival before, we usually do Celebrity, so this should be fun. I'll let you know. Getting excited! It's a well needed break for me & hubby. Chat soon....Deanie
