Do you Check the Port Schedule to See how many Ships are Leaving on your Cruise Date?

I always scope out how many cruise ships are coming or going from whatever port I am cruising out of in order to get a feel for the volume of people that will be there that day (especially if I am parking). I also usually check out if there are any huge events going on in the area that may impact traffic.

Do you scope out your Embarkation point before traveling?

I do for traffic and timing purposes. I also check out the ports on the days I will be there to get an idea of how crowded the place will be and help decide osome excursions. 

No, I've never have.

I look to see if my ship is in port as I'm driving in. Other than that, I don't care.

No reason not to --

Cruiseline.Com makes it easy.

Just go to "Explore", "Ports" and choose your port. On the right margin you can enter thedate you will be there and it will list all the ships, as well as estimated number of passengers per ship, that will be at the port.

Well for curiosity sake I just checked by Nov. 19th cruise out of Miami.  There will be 5 ships in port.

Yep, we do.  Heck, I check the port schedule to see what ships are coming to town when we are at home. I'm curious like that. Plus, if we head over to Castle Island (in Southie), it's fun to grab a hot dog and watch the evening departures. 

Back to the topic at hand....

While we can't do anything about which ships are where, we can plan a little better as to timing of Uber or taxi pick up. I prefer to schedule a ride in advance rather than wait until possibly 30K other people are trying to lock down a ride to their respective ships at the same time :)
