Usually, you put your information in the system to let Carnival know when your flights are and that determine what time to debark. Well this time, Carnival was going by the higher floors. Everyone was upset and in the lobby with their luggage and wanted to get off the ship. Well, we didn't arrive to FL until after 8:30 and it was very slow!! We missed our flight.
