We changed TAs since our last cruise and I just received a package with REAL Docs! Didn't have to go on the RCI site and print them off or anything like that.

This is a real booklet with our names, all our cruise / flight / shuttle details, and even pretty luggage tags with our names, stateroom #, and even our C&A level printed on them!

I sure like this a lot better than the e-docs we had to print - seems so much more "real".

Cha Cha 1-2-3, Cha Cha 1-2-3, wheeee!

It's going to be the last ones you receive without paying for them, so enjoy it. All bookings made after December 13 will be e-docs only, unless you want to pay $35.

You are aware you can get the luggage tags by ordering them on-line, even with e-docs? Mine came just a few days after I submitted the request.

Thanks for spoiling a perfectly good afternoon, Dave!

Last time we did the e-doc thing, I had to print off our docs and get luggage tags at the pier where the porters hand-wrote the info on them.

I was so glad to get real docs again - thought it was because of the new TA.

I had not heard about the new "pay for docs" before, or the fact that I can order luggage tags on line.

Looks like the docs issue is going down the same road as checking your luggage on a flight for free (except SW so far).

Well, some of the spring has been taken out of my step, but I'll be sure to enjoy my docs this last time.

step... step... side... close...

Definately not as much fun.

They recently added the luggage tag option to their website. When I did my SetSail Pass I requested the tags and they were sent to me in just a few days, 8 tags just like yours with the C&A level, name, etc.

They announced the fee last month although it doesn't show up on the RCI website in the FAQ section. This goes for Celebrity too. Azamara won't have the paper fee. Oops, I mean Azamara Club Cruises.

When was the last time you had paper airline tickets? We'll all get used to the e-docs, whether we print them out or just print the SetSail Pass. Like so many changes, the e-docs will become the new normal.

Docs are a good thing, no matter what form they come in.
