Hmmmm, I have a feeling she would have found the spa even without the flyers.
You're right! This is a woman who bought a timeshare in Hawaii on a whim 4 years ago . . .and hasn't been there yet.

Good thing she wasn't on a Carnival ship several years ago...she might have ended up buying a certain "unmentioned" vacation club.

We can print our own tags at home but it is a bit of a hassle either taking a stapler or making sure one is available at the motel/hotel. The last few cruises our travel agent still presents us with a booklet from NCL and inside are nice adhesive luggage tags we attach just before we leave for the ship, it is nice not to have the worry of paper ones tearing. I like the tape idea though.

We keep telling them to stop printing all of the photos and them throwing most of them out. This would be a great saving of ink and photo paper which is not cheap. They have indicated that they are working on doing this, but how long will it take. This is one place they can save money.

I don't even let them take the pictures anymore. When I board the ship I simply tell them I don't want my picture taken and walk around the setup. I do the same when debarking at ports when they want to take your picture getting off the ship. When they come around at dinner I simply say No Thank You. A lot of people feel obligated to have their picture taken even though they know they will never buy any. It would save a lot of printing paper and ink if they would just learn to say No. Some cruise lines using digital cameras are going to a method of only printing one copy of a picture and then if you want more they have a code to find your picture and print more.

I have come to the point of being annoyed by the incessant photos. Here I am enjoying my dinner and the company of my tablemates, when a photographer suddenly appears and disrupts everything. It really ticks me off. "You stand there", "you put your arm around him". It ruins the moment quite often. I wish they'd put the photographers in a holding area and only allow them in for special requests.

I totally agree with your both comments. We do not get our pictures taken either and Dave you are 100% correct about the dinning room. They should have a area where you go and get the pictures taken if you want. However when we walk thru the photo department there are lots of pictures on display. I asked what do you do with these and the answer is they throw them out and destroy the prints once the cruise is over.

The most annoying picture I let them take was in the casino with the money bag props. I didn't look too happy in that one, I was down $250.

Back to the luggage tags, has anyone used the sticky type clear sheets? I know some people say they are fine without reinforcement. I have heard stories where they can indeed come off. Then it's a hassle to go identify your luggage. One of the old ones with the elastic string came off of my snorkel bag once. They actually opened it up and ask me to identify the contents before they would deliver it.

Last year on the Holiday I tested things by using just the paper tags I printed and stapling them on the handles. It all made it to our cabin. But that was just one example. Plus it was a small port and ship.
