Get off the ship at a port and fly back home .. allowed?
I'm considering a south caribbean cruise with Carnival. But with a twist.

I would like to get off the ship at Aruba, the last port. Stay their for two weeks and then fly home.

Is this allowed?

Sure, you can get off in another country and fly back if you let the cruise company know what you are planning to do and book a flight. Of course if your flight, food, and/or lodging after you disembark is your responsibility.

What a most fantastic idea! Aruba was one of my all-time favorite places on our Destiny cruise. If I had the time off to do what you are planning I would SO do it :)

Ohh, that'll be great that you can miss all the disembarking back at the terminal. I always forget what a nightmare that is.

Just stay away from people like Joran Van Der Sloot.

I once heard about a man who was from Puerto Rico but now living in the states who never flies. Whenever he goes to visit family in PR he books 2 cruises. He gets off at PR on the 1st cruise, stays for awhile then gets on the 2nd cruise to return to the states. I have no idea if this is true (heard about him on a message board) but I suppose it's possble. It would be kind of expensive but money may not be an issue for him
