Due to an early flight, we need to disembark from our cruise very early in the morning, around 5:30 a.m. Carnival Cruise lines said that will not be a problem, just to let them know. We are arranging private transportation to pick us up and drive us to the airport. What about customs? Are there people there to check us through at that time of day? This has me worried, since we have only cruised once before and not out of Civitivecchia. Our flight is at 9:45 a.m. in Rome. Thanks for any assistance in helping me calm my nerves about not making the plane! I would never hear the end of it from my husband, who is a nervous flyer.
