shuttle pickup time Miami disembarkment

We are being picked up from the Miami port by QLS. What time should I request for pickup? I guessed at 10:00 a.m. but I think that may be later than what is needed. Our flight out of FLL is not until 1:00 p.m.

Thanks much!
Kate

I guess it depends on a lot of things. 1. If you have early breakfast. 2. Which character you have for disembarkation.

We just sailed on the Wonder in February. We had a late breakfast at 8:30 and were probably off the ship by 9:30/9:45. We had Mickey. They disembark the ship by character.

I'm not sure what time they started disembarkation. But I know we did not dock until 6:30 a.m.

So I guess to answer - if you had a late breakfast, 10 a.m. might be a perfect pickup time since you will also need to get your bags and clear customs in Miami. But if you have an early breakfast, you might want to get an earlier pickup.

Many thanks! I think we will stay with the 10:00 pickup. We plan to eat at the buffet and do not mind waiting. I would not like to feel rushed, especially since we have plenty of time before our flights. I would rather wait for the shuttle than have the shuttle wait for us.
