I ended up booking my next cruise, and from the looks of things on the reservation page on RCI, after I click "modify" on the "Ground transportation" option, it looks like there is only 1 time selected for arrival and departure times. I can book transfers for 12:30 pm arrival and departure. Is there any way to edit those times, or do I just go ahead with those times? I will be arriving probably earlier than 12:30 on the day of the cruise, and the 12:30 departure time is fine for the post cruise, so I'm mainly concerned with the pre cruise pick up time.

Sorry. I forgot to mention above that the transfers are to and from Port Canaveral from Orlando Airport.

I doubt there's a way to edit them. Either they don't start any earlier, or the earlier bus(s) are full. So they're leaving from the airport at 12:30? Or is that arriving at the ship at 12:30?

I think it is just a default time and I wouldn't pay too much attention to it. They have buses running from MCO to the port pretty regularly. When you arrive and are greeted by the RCI people they will likely put you on a bus fairly quickly.

When I arrived at MCO a couple years ago the RCI transport desk asked if I'd wait for another flight to arrive, but if not they'd "burn a bus" and transport me and a few others right then and there. Everyone else had agreed to wait so I did too. As it was we only had to wait about 20 minutes until that flight arrived.

Similarly, on debarkation day I was in the diamond member express departure and was sitting in the bus at 7am.

Thanks Dave.

Penny, I believe they mean leaving Orlando Airport at 12:30, which according to RCI, will be the last shuttle, since it's a 4:30 set sail.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 08:31 AM.
