Advice Needed - Train From Sete to Carcassonne and Back

Greetings,

I am scheduled to be be in Sete for a cruise stop on 19 September. Our ship is to be in port from 7:00 to 6:00/18:00.

We would like to take a train to and from Sete.

We will try to be early off the ship to catch the 8:07 or 9:16 outbound train to Carcassonne.

For our return to Sete there are two options - 13:27 or 15:33.

Should we take the earlier train to be sure we reach the ship on time? And, if we do, will we have enough time to explore Carcassonne?

Thank you.

Port of Sète to Sète station is about 2km, same for Carcassonne station to Cité. Carcassonne is more uphill than Sète.

There are some direct trains between Sète and Carcassonne which are TGV or Intercity trains for which reservations are needed. Otherwise they are slower regional trains, sometimes requiring a change of train at Narbonne.

The current timetable has fast trains in the mornings from Sète at 0814 (weekends) 0816 (weekdays) 0915 daily, then after that only slower regional trains.To return from Carcassonne there is a direct fast train at 1533 or 1833 or a a slightly slower direct regional train at 1758.

The journey by these trains is about 1hr 15 minutes.
