Hello Fellow NCL Travelers!
We are bound for the Western Caribbean out of New Orleans in April on the Sun and we just got our cruise documents from our TA.
So, gone are the lovely, colorful little booklets from NCL with all of your cruise documents in them and the nice vinyl folder that keeps everything together for the cruise? Gone are brightly colored NCL-issued baggage tags with elastic bands?
APPARENTLY! Our cruise documents are a stack of 8 1/2 x 11" sheets just stapled together. And there is a SINGLE paper copy of one baggage tag included that we are now supposed to "copy, fold over multiple times and then staple" onto the handle of each piece of our luggage! I'm in shock.
Have I missed something?! When did cruise documents and baggage tags become "extras?"
We have cruised with NCL before and have been very impressed, so I was not prepared this time for such unprofessional cruise paperwork.
If it weren't SO tacky, it would actually be incredibly funny. We will have an Aft Penthouse Suite on this cruise and we have to create our own baggage tags for the trip like some kind of an "arts and crafts" project?!
So, color me disappointed. However, if I see that our costs are "down" on other things during our cruise, as a result of this "paperwork economizing" on NCL's part, then I'll be happy to take back my comments.
