Airplane departure time from RC arrival

We are arriving at 6 am on the Royal Caribbean Cruise line, and would like to get an idea of how soon to book a flight out. We were told about 4 hrs, but not sure how long it takes to disembark, and how long the taxi ride would take.

Disembarking depends on many things including the number of people leaving at that time. Could be 30 to 40 minutes.

Taxi 20 to 30 minutes if there is bad traffic.

Airport Afids 15 minutes

Airport Security 30 to 40 minutes depending

In all reality disembarking takes place mostly between 8 and 11 am. If you get to the airport by 11 am you will be ahead of the chaos. Between 11 am and 1 pm it gets quite crowded with 2 or 3 ships disembarking and 1/2 the people going to the airport. A plane before noon puts you first in line to desembark. The biggest wait before the airport is picking up your bags and waiting to go thru customs from the ship.

Thank y'all for the info, would a 10:00 flight be too early?

10 am is cutting it close. Even 11 am you have to be in the first group disembarking.
