yeah.. it was much of a dance to be honest... shuffle or maybe a convulsion would be a better description.. But still exciting to see the documents in the pile o mail. far more so than seeing an electric bill!
Congratulations! Just wondering what you got in the mail because we received our "tickets" online a few days ago and just wondering if there is anything else that is supposed to be coming in the mail. We got our ticket, the baggage tag and the contract in our email. That was it. We are also booked on an NCL cruise. Is it "normal" to receive your documents in the mail and should I be looking to receive anything else?
Thanks so much.
Normally (unless they recently changed something on NCL) you get your "documents" in the mail 30 to 45 days before your sail date. This includes the paper ticket book, a set of luggage tags and some general cruise information. And they also included a booklet of excursions. We did get a receipt page (Confirmation Information) that showed what we have paid etc and the cruise date in the mail but I don't remember seeing luggage tags.
We got the same types of things from Carnival, so I was somewhat expecting them. Did you fill out your online "Advanced Guest Registration" yet? They also send you a paper copy of that in case you didn't. Its easier to fill it out and submit it online than send it in.
As far as the luggage tags, how did they send those via email? These are different from Carnival as they are more like the airline tags that fold around the handle of the bag and stick to themselves. They also have our names already printed on them along with the cabin number etc... CCL gives you colored tags with the name of the ship and you cabin "color" that attach to your bags via elastic string. You have to fill in all the other info.
Give me more details on what you got in the email. Was it more than the "Confirmation - Guest Copy" page that confirms your booking?
Here is exactly what we got from them in our email:
Documentation kit which includes:
1. Cruise Ticket: (it is a page with information on it containing our ticket numbers, names, cabin number, our on board email address and says "to be presented for passage")
2. Information regarding the port (with guest check in time, port location, etc.)
3. The itinerary page
4. A "bag tag" page with a bag tag containing the cabin number and date of the cruise with instructions telling us to print, cut, fold it and how to attach them to our bags.
We already filled out the registration online. I guess this is all we will be getting. We haven't gotten anything regarding excursions and I guess I am just feeling a little strange here not hearing of anyone else receiving E-docs. Maybe they are doing what the airlines are doing now with their E-tickets???
Suitcase full of money? Heck I won't take anything less then owning the ship! Then I can invite all the Cruise Chat addicts out for a free cruise!
Can'twaittocruise- Maybe you opted for the e-ticket route. I don't remember stating that I wanted paper and not electrons, but maybe I did. next time tell them you want your tickets mailed to your house. It sounds like you got everything we did except the excursion booklet. Which wouldn't be terrible is the excursions were actually posted on the web site! They told us they would get on there 60 days before the cruise... Well, I'm at 51 and still no sign of them. also the bagage tag thing seems goofy. The ones they sent us are made from that tear resistent paper and have sticky stuff on them. Print yours out? What a pain. But, then I guess you missed out on the doc dance then as you already got yours and didn't realize you were supposed to do the dance.
