Do we have to bring the whole printed out version of our cruise docs? Obviously we have some vouchers in there for the hotel and transfers to the ship that we will take with us. There is alot of un-needed info in there. (We have our set-sail passes all printed up and ready to go).
Do we need to print out and take every page of the cruise docs, and each of us have a copy??

You should only need one copy. It should have the entire booking (all the passengers traveling with you) unless you booked more than one cabin. If you got multiple sets of cruise docs that contain the same booking #, bring the most recent (as any cabin number changes/updates will be in it)

Do you need every page? No. The Set sail passes and hotel/transfer vouchers, yes. I would also take the pages that have your cabin assignment information on it. Then your passports and the credit card you want to use to back your charge account with on the ship.

I don't remember how much "fluff" is in the cruise docs for RCI. How much is left after the "important stuff" above? To be safe, I would bring any pages that have information unique to you and even then you probably won't need them, but better to have them than not.

Once on board, I do a thinning of documentation. You don't need anything but return transfer/hotel vouchers and return flight info. The rest can be tossed if you like. (My wife likes to use some of it for scrap booking fodder) The one thing I always seem to forget is my return flight information. I am always careful to have all the information for my trip too the ship (because that is the thing I am most concerned with getting correct.) But when its time to come home, I always seem to realize I thinned that page out of my folder or forgot it completely. Then I end up in the internet cafe looking up my flight info...

I have checked in several times with just the print out of the Set Sail Pass with your signature, my passport, and credit card. Once you fill out all the information online its in the system. The Set Sail Pass is your documentation to get through the entrance of the terminal. Just make sure you have everyone's name traveling on a Set Sail Pass. Of course if you have transfer coupons or hotel vouchers you need that also. You certainly don't have to print out the cruise contract. You just have to be aware of what it says. IE: Like they have the right to change the itinerary.

From the RCI website: What you need to present at check-in.

That is all we bring these days. The pier staff really doesn't want guests to drop a pile of paper on the desk. They scan the bar code on the setsail pass, verify your ID, scan your credit card, you get your cruise cards, and boom, you are done.
