We always fly the day before and stay in a hotel the night before our cruise but don't want the airline messing up or getting confused by the cruise tag. We take roll of clear, wide packing tape in our carry on.

The morning of the cruise we fold the tag as indicated then put a strip of tape on printed side leaving an extra 1/2 inch of tape at each end. Then fold the tag around the handle and stick the 1/2 inch ends of tape together. The tag is now laminated but not real secure unless the tape is wider than the tag.

If the tape is not wider than the tag: Press the tag together near the luggage handle and wrap the tape around the tag once. It will now be secure enough that you'll need small scissors or clippers to get the tag off, and no tape is stuck to your bag.

You can also get the traditional elastic and cardboard tags from the porters at the ship, but you have to spend a little time at the port filling out and attaching the tags.
