Hmmm. well ok then. For anyone that hasn't already booked a same day flight an is curious as to whether that's a good idea or not, you can read the above responses and gain some insight.

Tim, I agree that 6AM seems like a safe flight. You should also look at the schedules and see what other flights go out that day too in case yours is canceled and you have to take another flight. If you have that info handy, you can use your cell phone at the airport and call the airline and rebook before the other passengers can make it to the ticketing counter and suck up all the seats.

Good luck, I hope everything goes smoothly. Also take the Carnival Hot-line number, just in case. I pray you will make it, and hopefully you can go down early the next time. It's just so much less stressful when you know you're there. It's way too expensive to have to meet the ship at a port of call to catch up with the cruise.

Tim, I'd also look into travel insurance that includes missed connection insurance.
