While we aren't affected by this new procedure since we carry on our bags, although I did use them on our bags in case we got separated from them. I can only wonder how many pieces of luggage will be delayed from getting to the cabins before evening.
Also from what I hear, they offer generic luggage tags at all the piers. Has anyone actually seen or used them? Are they the same as they used to send in past years or just the tie on ones with string? If so, I'm going to get a few on our next trip to use in the future.
