Hey Cort, I waited too long to put my luggage out once a long time ago and faced the same thing. It was before self-disembark, it was a nightmare. I don't understand the concept, and when I first heard it I actually laughed. I am not carrying anything off the ship but my backpack and my broke self
CruiseDad, Maybe some ports do it differently, but at Port Canaveral all the luggage is there at the same time and in sections. They just call the colors one at a time to pick it up.
