Default Can I carry my suitcase to room

We are on serenade sept 25 out of nyc. I will be driving to pier and have no problem carrying all my luggage. Can't I just carry my own luggage to my own room. I don't need help. do they make me check it in baggage?

I am also going on the sept 25 cruise. But I am pretty sure that you can't take your luggage on yourself. I have heard that they deliver it to your room.

It's my understanding that all "large" pieces of luggage must be checked. You might have your TA confirm this. You may however take a smaller carry-on. The porters will deliver your luggage in the mid to late afternoon.

You must check your bags when you arrive. You can bring a carry on with you and you should pack items that you need for the afternoon and evening if you can fit it. Bags are usually delivered pretty quickly. I have always had them by 7:00.

The key here is the size of the luggage. If it will fit thru the x-ray machines, you can carry it on. If it won't fit you must check it.

Cruiseguy has it right. I has to fit in the XRay machine, otherwise it has to be checked in. They discourage you carrying your own luggage,

From what I recall, the folks you check it with are Port Authority workers, not RCCL employees. Therefore, RCCL has not assumed responsibility for you luggage should it get lost . This happened to a friend of mine on Carnival. He got nothing for his lost luggage, and it was all of it. what he and his wife had for the week was what was on their back and carryon....but this was before you were required to check large luggage so maybe this has changed.
