We just got off b2b's on Saturday from the Wonder. The process was fast- less than 45 minutes from meeting in Studio Sea, through customs and back on the ship drinking coffee by 10:45.
What ship are you on?

Ooooh! Good to know! We are doing B2B on 3/11. Sounds like the process in Miami is faster than Port Canaveral. We did that one last year and it seemed to take about 1.5-2 hours...although it could have just seemed like it.

There is really no set time for turnaround on doing a B2B. It can vary cruise to cruise and ship to ship but usually does not take more than 1.5 hours.

A lot depends on customs' clearing the ship, amount of people doing B2B's, staff checking in, etc.

Thank you for this information! We board the Wonder on Thursday for the first of our B2B's.
