    We are booked on a RCCL cruise that is supposed to dock in Amsterdam at 6am. Is it too risky to book an 11:55am flight out? Has anyone done this before? Thanks.

    I would personally be stressed that close internationally. Especially if there were any delays debarking, customs, luggage etc. Though if you are completely off the ship and past customs before 9 and head straight there you should be ok.

    I wouldn't risk it. Schipol is a huge airport.

    Running to catch a plane before they close the gate at Schiphol (Amsterdam airport) is no fun (lightly put).... been there, done that. It's indeed huge; I wouldn't recommend it.

    Thank you all for your replies. We will schedule flight out the next day instead.

    An extra day in Amsterdam can be plenty of fun. A lot of very cool buildings and places to eat etc, many things to tour. I still crave a fresh warm stroopwaffel since leaving.
