So we just booked and paid in full our 3day cruise on Wed. When should we be received our cruise paperwork in the mail. I opted by mail cfuz my pc seems to have a glitch with adobe and printing and didnt want to risk not getting them printed.
So I have been antsy waiting everyday and checking the mail hoping they are there (I know its so soon after booking but Im a big kid I have NO patience LOL)
Simply go to www.royalcaribbean.com and at the top of the page there is a row of tabs. The center one says "Before You Board". Put your cursor over it and a drop down menu will appear. One of the tabs says "Online Registration". Click on it. Put in your booking #, ship and sail date, etc. You'll be able to complete your online check-in now. Don't worry about the printer, today everything is electronic. Once you've registered it'll promt you to print, try or just ignore it. Either way you'll be in their computer and registered when you arrive, no ticket needed. They will print the "Set Sail Pass" for you at the pier and ask you to sign it. They then hand you a key card and send you on the ship. Quick and painless no worries.
When I booked our upcoming Liberty Of The Seas cruise I requested electronic docs. I haven't received anything but I've already printed out my Set Sail Pass, which is all I'll need anyway. But what about luggage tags for those who get e-docs? Do they still come in the mail or do we simply do that at the pier?
The hoard of Porters at the pier have them for you. The first thing they'll ask for is your Set Sail Pass. Hand it to 'em and they make 'em on the spot, strap 'em on in front of you and dally just a little loading your luggage hoping for a tip (A good idea).
Dave, another option is that Royal Caribbean sent me luggage tag stock. For my clients who get electronic tickets, I can click on a luggage tag page and print out personalized RCI tags right onto their tag stock.
If you don't have your luggage taps when you get to the pier your porter will have them. On our last cruise he gave them to us and we filled them out. I think an average tip is two bucks per luggage bag.
