The porters are the people on the pier who receive your luggage when you arrive for the cruise. Valet Service is a program RCI has where in some ports you can pay a fee and they will process your luggage for the flight home, print baggage tags, and your boarding passes. In some ports the luggage goes from your cabin to the airport directly. In others you have to carry it through Customs and then load it on a truck at the pier for delivery to the airline.
