Default luggage tags - electronic docs

to the electronic luggage tags have to be printed in color or is black and white okay? My inkjet printer is sort of messed up and doesn't do color very well right now.

Thanks!

Michelle,

Print what you have. once you get ready to get off the ship, then you might want to get the color tags from the book case thing near the pursers desk.

These new tags are weeks old. All new to all of us, so they will be watching extra careful, until it all works out.

Thersa,

Did that come from your TA? I wonder if they will just stop printing tags once these run out.

As I said. All of this e-doc business is very new!!

What color did your luggage tags come up as on your computer?

Mine for the Lido deck on the Glory, were Salmon.

Maybe if everybody who prints luggage tags through the E-Docs, chimes in, we can figure out if Carnival is using the same color coded system they use with the old style luggage tags.

on my computer screen they do look salmon colored, but when I print it out in comes out light pink; I know it's something with this printer, it has not printed color properly for the last two color toner cartriges I've bought.

again, I'm only going to have carry on luggage, so I'll self-debark, but I do want to perhaps use these printouts to put on my totebag, etc. in the event I lose it or my binoculars and my TA is getting hard copy cruise docs and tags for me, so I can have them on the bags in case they somehow do get lost....

if nothing else, a nice reminder of our trip, to have a sturdy tag.

but if we can also get them when we board, that is nice to know!

Our tags and info package came from directly Princess. We booked thru Carnival Vacation Club, not our regular TA.

You could just print them on cardstock, like you would a greeting card in your computer.

If you just use regular paper, triple folded per the instructions on the e-tags and then use standard 2" clear packing tape over the tag, it will be far sturdier than the old cardstock tags with a rubber band.

Bill

We are leaving Sept. 8th on the Ecstasy. My TA requested electronic docs for us because she said it would be faster. Do I need to go to Carnival website to retrieve these or will they come in my email? I can print luggage tags on card stock - no problem.

Go to the website and click on electronic documents.

Thanks so much Bill. You'd think my TA would have told me that. The few things she did say I already knew (and much more) from reading this message board. Honestly, I felt I knew as much as she did - and I'm a 1st time cruiser!

I called CCL to check on the status of my docs and was told I wouldnt be receiving a copy of my docs via mail due to they show I had already printed a copy of my docs electronically via the net. I have no problem with paper docs, its the paper luggage tags which I must now print out and attach to our luggage. The CCL rep advised me it is a glich with their new system that they havent quite been able to get resolved at this time and instructed me to get some clear packing tape to sort of "laminate" each luggage tag so they wont tear turing transit.

It sounds good...but I'll see how it works this weekend.

I am booked on the Triumph on the Panarama deck and my tags appear salmon on my computer. I havent printed them out yet to verify.

I understand that you can actually get luggage tags at the port when you check in! Also, if you went through a travel agent to boo your cruise, the TA can get you their little ticket book and the luggage tags. I got electronic and my TA got the regular cruise docs for me and tags as well.

Ok. Thanks.

We booked directly through CCL. I too tried to book through a local travel agent, but grew frustrated when I seemed to know more than they did and this is only my 2nd cruise! Besides none of them could come close to the deals I got on my own. I was able to book an OVG for only $50 more than an interior cabin on the Riveria deck. I ended up getting upgraded to a balcony cabin on the Panorama deck! The down side to booking everything yourself, however is all the time and research it requires.
