Default electronic or paper documents

Jut found the part where you can get your documents electronically or in the mail. I do everything else electronically, but there is something about having the tickets in the mail in my hand -- not sure what I want to do. Besides, how do you print out luggage tags? What is everyone going to?

I have a little input here.....I'll tell you that this is our first cruise and I purposely selected for them to send me paper documents. Never having cruised before, I wanted to see what they were actually like. In the mean time I selected and viewed my electronic documents from home and printed them off. I received my paper documents in the mail yesterday and other than the acceptance of both, the paperwork they send is much more very detailed and come and in a very neat and special packet that looks a lot like a passport cover. The whole thing is really, really nice looking. And the luggage tags are twice as nice as the ones you print off from the electronic docs.

I got both. The paper is worth the wait.

I do like the electronic luggage tags better.

Princess does ETickets now but they sent us our luggage tags and excursion info 60 days before our cruise. I don't remember if we got a choice or not.

I stick with paper. I am old fashioned. I like paper, alas.....I might consider electronic in the future, but I like to have the little booklet as a remind I went on a cruise *BG*

How can you get both? I'd like to be able to view my documents online but I would still like to get the paper ones too.

I've been debating with myself about the e-docs or the mailed ones. I think I will stick with the mailed ones for now. I also like the idea of having the "booklet" in my hand. I imagine one day I might switch but being fairly new to cruising I like the mailed ones. Can you do both? I would like to see the e-docs. I've already completed my funpass and now just waiting for my BF to get his passport so I can do his funpass. I'm ready

I say, I'm paying enough for my cruise, let them foot the bill for paper and ink.
Nah, really I just think it will be exicting to recieve them in the mail, then I can do the doc dance right?
If something happens and I don't recieve them, I can always print.

Default paper documents

I like the paper docs, as my kids say i am electronically challenged(NOT) and i might down load the local weather or the fishing report from belize instead of the edocs. i like the paper docks anyway you can read the stuff with it
