I read today, Princess is offeriing a great, but costly service, and I am wondering if you would try it.
This month, Princess started their Luggage Valet Service, beginning with European travelers, and to continue forward on all their itineraries.
This is a direct shipping service, in which luggage is picked up right from the passengers home, and delivered to to their stateroom. DHL is the carrier.The luggage can be picked up 30 days prior to sailing from, the US, and Canada.
The pricing starts at $90.00 per bag, each way, and, then, will vary depending on weight and destination. All baggage is insured up to $2,000.00.
A complimentary service will begin, later in the year, for when, people buy from the onboard shops, and want to ship things home. Nothing heavy enough for me to use this particular service, but nice they will offer it.
So, knowing how you pack, or overpack, and the costs involved, would you utilize this service, to make the trip to a cruise, and have a hassle free time, or say heck no, much toooooo $$$$$?
