@twangster thank you! MY TA has not been the best to say the least so appreciate this! do I get anything else from TA or just nothing? Print everything out?

Unless your TA has thrown in specific items like a specialty dinner or something you shouldn't need anything from the TA.  To check in at the terminal you need the SetSail pass.  You don't need to print the whole 'edoc' package after checking in online.  SetSail passes vary by ship.  As Royal implements new check in changes this year it may change again.  They are trying to make the check in process go even faster so you spend less time in the terminal and more time on your vacation.  

In truth you can just show up to the terminal and be checked in but it's better to have the SetSail pass and luggage tags printed ahead of time.  The porters at the terminal can make up a luggage tag on the spot but it's better to print them in color and to have them attached to your bags already when you pull up to the terminal.

Again thank you Twangster, your information is always so valuable. Are you sure you won't adopt me though??:7_sweat_smile:

THANK YOU!! and I ordered those tags from Amazon in September! LOL Not too anxious to get cruising again am I! LOL

@Boston Babe -just a quick piece of unsolicited advice: If you are flying to get to your cruise, put the luggage tags in your carry on and then attach them at baggage claim when you arrive. That way they cannot interfere with the airline tags. I do have the same ones--they ARE great and they attach very easily and quickly.

Thanks @Skid!  This year not flying leaving from Baltimore and Cape Liberty, but January we are. I thought of that as it can get confusing. Thanks so much!

I just got my luggage tags yesterday via email, at the 46 day mark. Part of an overall e-brochure with cruise contract, port information, embarkation time window (I was told "12:30-4:30", to which I say "yeah, right!"), and a fair bit of promotional fluff. All printed out and in our tag holders, ready to be clipped to our bags in 45 days!

Agreed.  Should have bought them a long time ago.  Worth every penny.  Cruisin' like a pro...

Ah! To buy luggage tag holders or not. We used a roll of transparent duct tape this past cruise. It worked great. By "worked great", I mean the luggage made it to our cabin without any problems! We just stuck the tape and the scissors in the car before we got on the shuttle, and we were off and running...

I paid fedex office to print my luggage tags on a high quality glossy thick paper. Cot less than $2 for 4 copies. The even got wet and had no smearing or discoloration. 

That's a fabulous idea! I just realized we have a laminater in the office, too. I hope no one else from  my office is on this board....

I used packaging tape for years.  Packed it in my suitcase and used it at the hotel the night before.  Best $7 I spent was buying the luggage tag holders.  So much easier.

Since I do everything you suggest, I will go buy the luggage tag holders. I do sometimes learn from others. I don't always have to pee on the electric fence for myself! :-)

These are the ones I bought, based on earlier recommendations here: Cruise Luggage Tag Holder Zip Seal & Steel - Royal Caribbean & Celebrity Cruise (8 Luggage Tag Holders)

Bit wider than the folded RCI tag, can probably accommodate the ones from some other cruise  lines.

These are the same ones that I have also.  Reusable year after year.
