Default Luggage express program

My wife & I signed up for the luggage express program on the Liberty. We were given paperwork that stated that if not in the Dining Room by 8:00a.m. we would be ineligible to participate in early debrakation. There were 75 folks that had signed up & 72 of us were in the dining room at 7:55. We were told at 8:15 that we all needed to wait on the other 3 so that we could all depart together. 8:30 still waiting and tempers from other folks waiting were beginning to surface. At 8:50 the staff sitting with us gave up on the announcements on the missing 3 & let us that had the ability to read a watch and simple directions head to customs. As we were leaving the other 3 were found asking staff where they were supposed to meet for the luggage express. It was a great cruise, great staff, just a little frustrating that we all had to wait on a few ding a lings. Long story short, next time I will save the $20 each & carry my bags off & wait in line at Mia airport.

Thanks for the heads up, sounds like a real waste of $20...Just suprised that they didn't start on time and forget about the missing 3??

We used Luggage Express as a means of loafing around the Lido Deck a little longer and then not worrying about bags until we landed at home. Thought it was pretty nice.

Nothing is worse then stragglers..The line sets the time,and breaks it's own rules..I agree, frustrating! Glad you enjoyed your cruise!

Luggage express must have changed. We used back in 2010 shortly after it came out. And you could report to the main stage and do early debarktion. But were free to debark at your pleasure.

Back in the 80's when I started cruising Carnival had a service that I loved and it was free. Back in those days I was flying from Boston. We used to get off the ship, claim our luggage and take it out to the curb to a truck from the airline we used. They would check in our luggage right there and we never saw it again until we picked it up in Boston. Great service.
