10 A-Z Guide to Cruise HolidaysDisembarkationAt least 24 hours before the end of your cruise full disembarkation instructions will be placed within your cabin. On arrival into port the vessel has to be cleared by Customs and Immigration Officials before disembarkation can commence. This enables you to have a leisurely breakfast, vacate your cabin, and take a comfortable seat in one of the public lounges before being called forward according to your colour coded disembarkation card.In general, disembarkation commences at 0800hrs, but please allow up to 2 hours for the entire ship to be cleared.
