Luggage tags on Carnival Ships

Jump to last reply

I have just received my travel documents for a cruise on Carnival Breeze for Dec. 8th. from my travel agency.

To my surprise, the only luggage tag is a piece of paper that I'm supposed to photocopy and put around the handle of my suitcases! I have been on over 20 cruises and it's the first time that I get a piece of paper, usually it is a tag that is so strong that you cannot tear it even if you wanted to.

Last year I was on Ruby Princess and had the regular luggage tags. I called Carnival and they told me that's all you get for your luggages. The agent told me to put it on my luggage before leaving. The handlers are so rough with your luggages (every year I come back with something broken or caved in on my suitcases) I don't think that a piece of paper attached to them will last too long!

Any suggestions on how to make sure that the tags survive the trip long enough so my luggages arrive safely to the right cabin and not get loss. Anyone had their luggages misplaced or loss because of that. I know that they want to save money, but I think there's a limit.
