Ok, I have Top Shuttle willing to pick us up..and if we can't call we have to give them a time around to get us..

So our last debarkment was a nightmare ..since we are Canucks we have to stand in the really long line..

we stood in line last time for 2 hours to get through Customs it was a nightmare..

So never been to Miami Port and have no idea what time our color shall be called..

IS there a time you all would suggest to tell them..I don't mind saying later time as I'd feel terrible that they are waiting for us,

I wanted to say 11:00am, but wondering if thats a dream time..lol.

Thanks again' :smiley:

Ann, the way I would handle this is ….First and foremost I would explain it all to Top Shuttle, and explain that sometimes it takes a while to get thru customs and sometimes it’s a breeze.. that you just never know… That sets up the human touch.. the damsel in distress.. most Americans LOVE to come to the rescue! LOL but I digress.

I would set a time of approximately 2.5 hours AFTER you arrive that gives all a chance to process and be processed(bathroom freshen up).. However when you arrive and finally leave the plane if a pay phone is available I would do a courtesy call to Top Shuttle and inform them that the plane has arrived and that you will notify them if you are ready before the scheduled pick up time you had originally set. This makes the dispatcher aware that he has an order up and can position a driver to be available in 15 minute notice. That’s just what I would do. :grin:

Chances are you will meet someone during the cruise who has broght a cell phone along with them. I'm sure they'd let you make one call when you disembark....

Our ship also docked in Miami at 7am, and the debarkation went extremely slow...

We had an excursion set up to take us on a tour of Miami, and then directly to the airport using the tour bus. Even doing that, we didn't get off the ship until almost 11am, and we were one of the first ones off the ship. (This was Carnival).

You're just going to go to the hotel, so you don't have a plane to catch. I'd set up the pickup time for 12 noon, and tell them you will give them a phone call if you get off any earlier.

We just used "At your Service Limos" to take us to and from Miami & Boynton Beach. There were 8 of us and it was $75 a couple for the round trip. They were great and had no problem waiting. They do it all the time and knew what time to be there. All we did was call them when we went to get our luggage and he was there when we got outside. I don't have the number but I can get it if you can't find it. We were on RCI and got off went through "customs"( it was a joke) and were in the limo in a matter of about an hour. Good luck

Oh, I forgot to mention that we were to start the disembarkation at 7 and we were the last group called since we had no other plans except to go by car to Boynton beach. We were on the road by 9:25. That may be a miracle but that is how it worked for us. Have a great trip!
