I did not book our pre-cruise hotel and transfer from Royal Caribbean. After booking our flights on our own and saving $400 per person (compared to RCI quote), I assummed the hotel would be overpriced as well thru RC.

Is it even possible to do a transfer a day early thru RCI without booking a hotel? I have contacted the hotel and they will pick us up ($10 pp). With 2 adults and 4 children, we want to travel together in one vehicle also.

No, you can't get RCI transfer a day early without booking their hotel. I would just use a taxi to go to the hotel. You can request a van taxi.

The only way to do the transfer would be to go back to the airport on cruise day, which doesn't make sense. The transportation you arranged is a better idea.

Just got off the Liberty on our b2b. We put our tags on right before we got to the pier. RCCL has a major problem with these new tags...they are so thin and flimsy, there were ripped off tags everywhere on the ship. 2 of my bags had them ripped off, along with 3 of my own tags, so the crew was having to match up guests names from their luggage to cabin numbers. They were using the old tags and writing the cabin in marker.

We are Diamond and one of the bags (with the tags still intact) didn't arrive until 9pm...no one ( we even went to deck 2 where all the lost luggage goes) had any idea where it was...we got on the ship at 11am...10 hours...priority treatment for Diamond???

I suggest either you put tape on your bag with the name & cabin; or you wrap the label in the clear packing tape to keep it from ripping apart.

The person in charge of the luggage complained of how easily these tags tear off. Can't imagine a ship the size of the Oasis having all these bags with the tags torn off.

As far as a transfer, we always book our own flights, our own hotel and take a taxi to the pier...just make sure they make it a minivan so all the luggage can get in.

We had several bad experiences with flights, hotels and transfers through RCCL, so doing it ourselves has worked really well.
