Mike - that is an EXCELLENT idea. Tip of the month.
I have to say in the process of making all ticketing electronic, these mainstream cruise lines have kind of left a few details unclear - and this is one of them.
Mike - that is a great idea, so you don't have to carry a stapler and those paper tags (which can easily get destroyed in the travel process) stay in tact.
Thanks for mentioning it.
Let me get this straight - you take the paper tags (which are printed on your home printer) and you cover them front & back with clear "packing tape". Then you punch a hole in the end of them.
Then when you get to the pier you unfasten your regular luggage tag (many of them use a thick flexible rubber band, some have a leather strap) and you add the luggage tags to those fasteners, right?
