We had guaranteed cabin on RCI and the price went down on the cabin. RCI was nice enough to give us the discount and credit our card, but we had to give up the cabin assignment we ahd and go back into the "pool". We were lucky enough to move up a deck when we found out our new cabin location. The rep told us that we wouldn't need new "docs" mailed to us because they go by the res.# in the system when you board. My question is: We have already received our doc's and of course they have the original cabin number on the luggage tags. RCI assured me that when I check in, I can get new tags. My concern is when you pull up to drop off your bags, I have never seen any desk or keosk set up with a rep to get new tags. I don't want this to be a big mess and our luggage ends up getting lost. Any advice would be appreciated. We thought of scratching out the old cabin number and wrting in the new, but the tags are color coded by deck? I really don't want to lug our luggage through the embarkation process, and then have to carry it around until our room is ready.
The porters who help you with your luggage at the port will have the correct tags for you. Just tell them that your cabin assignment has been changed and you need the correct tags. I would'nt put the original tags on your luggage before arriving at the pier. Do you have your new cabin assignment? if so just tell them and they will help you get it tagged.
Yes, we have our new cabin number. its on a different deck. we got an upgrade. I guess they must use a generic tag and just write your cabin number in? I have never seen a desk area anywhere near the drop off area so I guess the individula bell hops have the tags. Thanks for the info.
Yes, the porters wll have luggage tags and they have access to the passenger manifest. You will need to seek out one of them and let them know you have a stateroom change. They will be more than happy to assist you. Have a great time.
