Default re: Express Check-In

I just received my Princess cruise tickets. I see a lot of people talking about having received their "express check-in." I filled in those forms and sent them back to Princess as soon as I got them and also used their cruise personalizer feature on the net two or three months before the cruise. Is there someplace on my tickets that should say I have express check-in? Or does the look of my ticket-book already indicate that? It's a booklet with about ten blue printed pages in it with all the info from the cruise personalizer that I entered. My first cruise, and don't want to mess up! (is there such a thing as cruise-anxiety???)
Thanks for being there for us!

There should be a sticker on or inside the plastic cover.

With Princess there is not a whole lot of difference between express and regular check in. Essentially the little "express" sticker (if it is there) just tells the rep that all your documents are complete and all he needs is to see your credit card and ID. It will only take the rep a second longer to flip through your documents and see that every thing is ok.
Yes, there is cruise anxiety. This experience you are about to go through may seem a little intimidating at first. Checking in at the pier is alot like checking in at the airport and with new security measures boarding is also like boarding a plane. HOWEVER, once on board you are in the hands of a staff of stewards, waiters crew , cruise staff, pursers and entertainers whose job it is to make you smile. When you disembark on the other end your only thoughts will be "when can I do this again".
Relax and enjoy, there is no vacation that compares with the cruise experience.

I don't think Princess has this down pat quite yet<G>

We filled out our info online, then for insurance duplicated again on the printed forms, which we sent it.
Our cruise docs arrived all filled in, but like you, no express check in sticker. Oh well!
They will let us on the ship, so that's the important part.

Once in your cruising career you have to experience embarking in Regal Empress at Port Manatee. Similiar but not quite as organized as boarding a troopship bound for WWI France. Every embarkation experience since has been a breeze. Just deliver yourself unto them, they have done it before and are way ahead of you. Same for debarking. They don't want you on the ship any more than you want to stay. Just relax and you will soon enough find yourself on the pier rooting for your bags.
