Default What do porters do?

Hi -
Do porters (Port Everglades, Star Princess, to be specific) take your bags, check them in at the curb and take them away -- like airline curbside checkin? or do they just unload the bags.

I ask because I want to drop off my disabled passenger and go to a remote parking lot -- but not if the person I drop off will have to manage, guard, or move the luggage before I get back from the parking lot.

Drive up . Porter will take the bags and put them in bins to be loaded onto the ship later.

Have your companion wait in an agreed to area while you park the car.

Hi gilligan2,

Welcome to Cruisemates!

Be sure to tip the porter! We usually tip $2.00 per bag. The only thing your friend will have to watch is your carry on luggage.
