Default Quick luggage tag question...

Our luggage tags came with our cruise docs. Just wondering if most of you put them on before flying to your port or do you put them on just before handing over your bags? I know bags aren't exactly handled with TLC by the airlines and just wondered if there is much chance of them getting destroyed while in their hands.

Put them on before getting on the plane. In case your bags get misdirected, the airlines can forward them to the ship instead of sending them back to your originating departure location.

to avoid confusion some airlines make you take all tickets off your baggage except for the ones for that flight. What we have done is to put our cruise luggage tags inside the suitcase with our identifcation info, just in case luggage gets lost. At the hotel we put our cruise tags on the bags before we leave for the port

If you are flying out on your sail date, & if your airlines allow it put them on before you fly. If you are planning to arrive a day or two before your cruise, don't put them on until the day of your cruise. It is also a good idea to place a note in each of your bags with your name address telephone number and your ship name and itinerary just in case your luggage tags inadvertantly get removed (lost) at least if they get opened, they will know where to forward them.
