Then the TSA would be an early cut LOL

A less than 5% budget cut in a budget increase, these mean TSA is getting more money than last year equals slower Customs lines. Government at its best.

I came through Port Everglades a couple of weeks ago on Celebrity and it was not a pleasant way to end a cruise. I guess the customs people at Port Canaveral didn't get the memo yet. You know the one: "Make anything that should be fun as painful as possible."

Disembarkation was a breeze off the Fantasy yesterday. Lines moved quickly and smoothly.

We had no issues in Miami disembarking the Wonder on Thursday (we were in the terminal for embarkation around 1040 and onboard before noon the prior Saturday). Maybe, because we were the only ship in port.

There were NINE ships in Port Everglades the day we embarked and who knows how many the day we disembarked. DH swears he will NEVER take a cruise out of there again. Maybe I can still get him to consider Miami since my favorite cruise line does not sail from Port Canaveral.

No problems getting off the Dream on 4/4/13. Just like it has always been in the past. No issue at MCO or BWI either. Actually shorter lines at both.

Where are you from since you fly from BWI? We live in Mt. Airy.

TSA has nothing to do with customs.
