Yes, the real test would be for those flying long distances and having to switch flights once or twice. The thing is, passengers shouldn't have to be inconvenienced to go to such extremes to reinforce with clear tape etc. Just so the cruise lines can save a little money on sending out luggage tags. There's so many other ways they can save money and they choose the one to inconvenience their passengers and place more work on travel agents.

The photographers can be a real pain. One time while we were having dinner one turned up and I could not resist saying “no please; my wife does not know my girlfriend is on the ship, if she sees this were are dead” Needless to say my wife who was of course sitting with me turned quite red and was not amused.

I also try and avoid them at ports of call as we leave the ship. My nephew was working as a photographer in the mid 90’s he only lasted one season, way too much stress.

Look at the poor impression that makes on new cruisers too. How much does the cost of pre-printing tags cost them? Maybe a couple bucks per booking?

They seem to be resigned to sending the Docs Electronically. I'm surprised Princess held out this long. I wasn't too happy when Carnival did this several months ago. I said it back then, and I'll say it again..I'd rather pay a few bucks extra and have my Docs mailed with the luggage tags they finally perfected.

Many land suppliers still send out nice tote bags and luggage tags, with the documents usually in a nice document holder.

Of all the ideas I've seen I think sandwiching the tag between two strips of clear packing tape, trimming, punching a hole and tying it to the luggage sounds the simplest and most effective.

My son is doing a 3-day on Elation next week so I will put it to the test.

I've been doing this for the last two years and find it works surprisingly well - and the tags absorb a lot of abusive handling and they keep on working fine!!

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.

I am leaving on the Ruby Princess in 2 weeks and am happy to say that I received the regular red coloured peel and fold luggage tags with my booking information from my travel agent. I wonder if it makes a difference that we are coming from outside of the US?
