Default Do you really....

Miss paper airline tickets and cruise documents? I thought I would miss them, and, I did for a while.....in the beginning,when we had options for airlines, I always opted for paper tickets. Peter Greenberg always said back then, if your flights got cancelled or you had any issues, the paper ticket had the upper hand.

Now, I love the convenience of printing out all I need, when I want to.
My old ta, gave me a bi fold HAL cruise document holder, that I still use to this day. One cruise, the bound book of documents, was so huge, it was a pain in the neck...think it was Celebrity.

I say, in these instances, I vote for progress..how about you?

I vote for progress but a lot of cruisers do not own or have access to computers .

If that's the case, their ta's would print, and send it to the client.

Well, airlines have never tried to tell us they were classy. A few possibly are now, with their offerings of full length beds for a long flight.

But cruise lines have always bragged about how luxurious they were/are. So making passengers print their own tickets, or sending them some tacky plastic thing, make their own reservations for whatever, that's not classy to me. That's not service.

I enjoy printing them out myself. I bought a half size accordion folder. It is somewhat larger than a business size envelope. All the docs and my passport fit nicely inside. Then I put it in the front pocket on my carry on for easy access.

This probably sounds stupid, but I miss getting those brightly coloured luggage tags in the mail. It was always exciting to see what colour they were, and to have the ship's name boldly printed on them - made the cruise so real to look forward to! Also, they were great for saving for scrapbooking later....
