Port Canaveral to MCO

Recommended Posts

I have booked Smart-two shuttle one way for post cruise transportation (renting a car pre-cruise).  We could choose between 8:30 or 10:35.  My flight leaves at 1:48.  My companion's flight is not until 3:15; another reason for the later shuttle-sitting around an airport is no fun.    We both have TSA pre-check.  Do you think this will be a problem?

Not sure what you are asking.   If you are asking whether 8:30 or 10:35 is better, 8:30 is better.  But you need to think about disembarking.  Taking your own luggage would get you off the ship in the 6:30 to 7:30 range, which is a tad early for pick up. (We left the Harmony at 6:30 and got through customs/immigration by 7:10.)   Going with an assigned group number may lead you to 10:35 ground transportation, which is cutting things closely get to the airport and to the gate.  But if you used the valet program (assuming it is available for your airline), you won't have to wrestle bags, and getting off the ship would be a breeze, etc.  I would rather be early than late....I read books at the airport and have a nice espresso drink, but I understand your concerns.

8:30!  Too many possible delays: ship, customs/immigration, TSA, traffic.   We had a three-hour customs wait in Tampa. 

Agree with 8:30-9:30 window; when I've been at MCO in the summer, it has had long lines. So I believe in allowing more time at the airport.

We are in a suite, so we will have the concierge escort us off of the ship.  My question is how risky a 10:30 shuttle is?  I can always cancel and book another form of transportation.
