Tom is presently on a family vacation in Puerto Vallarta. I am sure he will address your question when he returns, but having sailed from San Diego I can share my thoughts. The airport is quite close to the cruise port, so if you were to be first off the ship AND there were no immigration delays in allowing passengers to disembark - you would have plenty of time to make an 11:30 flight. If all goes well you could easily be at the airport by 9:00 AM. The problem, however, is that there are no guarantees that all will go well and there will be no delays in the disembarkation process.
