Wow, Dave...what a story.
I would have serious issues with this process. I can't believe that anyone at Royal Caribbean would think that this is OK, forcing innocent passengers to do some kind of perp walk.
So, the question is...did they change their process? Has anyone else experienced this recently?
Spiritfilled - I have used the luggage valet before without incident. It was a while back and it seems to me that for a time, they stopped offering it for some reason.
