The self debarkation usually starts at 7:30. It could start even earlier. You will have to be able to carry all your own luggage off the ship. Yes, you will be able to get something to eat early.

Thank you so much for your reply. For some reason I was under the impression that the process started at 6:30am and I was fearing a long drive with no coffee to get us kick started. Again, thank you

They do warn you to be ready to get off as early as 6:30 am and once they start letting people off, there is about a one hour window for self debark. Dining room and lido were both open and things were much less hassle than waiting for your color to be called (especially if you happen to be the last group called)

Remember you must be able to carry all of your belongings off without assistance. You are also subject to random check of your luggage as this is done to all luggage taken off by the cruise line prior to disembarcation. I have seen people "carted off" because they though they could get away with certain items by self disembarking.

But is the hassle worth it? Do a large portion of the passengers do it? What time will you get off the Legend if you let them handle your bag's?Is it 1 hour difference or is it 2-3 hours difference?How long has Carnival been doing this?Just curious! Tom

I have been on 2 cruises this last year 2005 and we used the self debark on one of them and the old fashion way on the other and january 2006 we used the new relaxed debark and we were off the ship by 10:30 am and we picked up our luggage in customs we were out of the pier area by 11;00 am and on our bus heading to the airport getting off the ship very short line getting off took about 7 to 10 minutes.

Carnival started the program back in Jan 2004. If you don't take the self debark then how soon you get off the ship would depend on the order the colored luggage tags are called. They usually call those in the top decks first, and people who have early flights before noon. Then they work down to the lower decks.
