Buenos Aires disembark

Cruising Celebrity.  What is the earliest departure time?  Departure port is Buenos Aires .  I can find a flight leaving at 10:30A.  Do we have time to make the flight?   How long does it take ship to airport?  How long through security?

Your questions are impossible to answer with absolute certainty because many factors can impact when a ship gets into port and when Customs clears the ship for people to disembark.  It could be as early as 6:30 in the morning or as late as 10:30.  Looks like the airport is about 20 miles away but traffic, etc could make that ride longer.  Clearing security can vary but if you are one of the first off the ship, it should go fairly fast.

If the stars all align, you could make it but there would certainly be no guarantee of that.

Thanks for the reply.  Celebrity rep says departure begins 7:00/7:30 and the ride to the airport is 45 min.  Haven't yet found how big the airport is.  Best I can tell, my choices of airline departure are 10:30A or ~5P.  Nothing between.

I've cruised quite a bit in the past year and would strongly recommend the later flight ... It's so much nicer to take your time disembarking and let the crowd rush off the ship. It's a fairly large airport with 3 terminals I believe ...

If my choice is a later flight, we'll wait til the following morning.  No overnight flight.  Any sight-seeing recommendations in Buenos Aires?

Argentina is beautiful according to my hubby who traveled there on business quite a bit years ago...sure there's tons to see and do!

Buenos Aires is beautiful - old and new - lots of parks and public areas. Worth an extra few hours or and extra day. We recently flew out of Buenos Aires for Lima, Peru. We flew LATAM - excellent lounge, great airport. Lima? Less fun (much less).

Usually ships request you not to book flights before noon. 

I was going to say, get your wallet out. They nick you for $160.00 per when you enter Argentina, and you have to line up and pay before you clear immigration (they call it a reciprocity fee and is good for ten years, hang on to your receipts, think we lost ours). But wait, it has been 7 years since we were there and I now see things have changed. They exempt Yankees from the fee, as of last August.   "US citizens were granted exemption from paying the reciprocity fee by Presidencial Decree No. 959/2016, published on August 23, 2016. The reciprocity fee still applies to Australian and Canadian passport holders."   Sorry my Canuck and Aussie friends. Life is not fair.  

 

Yeah, we've been on 25-30 cruises.  We often have flights leaving anytime after 10:45A, but, that's when using FLL, MIA, TPA.  Galveston is a little more problematic.  EZE?  Uncertain how big the airport is (security line), so I'm planning on departing the following day.
