I am going nuts anticipating the arrival of my documents!!! Question is will I get them via U.S. postage or will they arrive by carrier? I purchased through CVC. How did anyone else who purchased through CVC get theirs? I have worn out the blacktop leading to the mailbox!! Cruising on Sept. 25 and have heard that several other fellow cruisers have already gotten theirs. I WANT MINE TOO!!!! Thanks, Chef Nancy

We also booked through CVC for a 9/04 cruise. Docs arrived on 8/18. I believe they were delivered via Priority Mail. Based on that, your's might show up as late as 9/07 for a 9/25 cruise. This did seem rather late compared with when most report getting them. Maybe CVC is a little slow.
I just called our tour operator to see when we will be getting our documents for our 9/25 cruise and they said 2 weeks prior to the date. It would seem that with all of the technology improvements and information traveling at the speed of light, what you used to get a couple of months prior to your cruise date now arrives just before you leave.
Golfgirl - we are with you on that cruise and we don't have our docs yet either, went thru Crucon. Spoke with them today and was told within the week, will still be 3+ weeks out - I can wait but I know what you mean about wearing out the way to the mailbox.
They told me at CVC they send them FED EX about 7-10 days prior. I told them I needed them sooner and they mailed them to me. We received ours for the 09/04 cruise last Monday thru regular mail. You'd think they'd send them earlier & save a lot of money since it was only $3.85 thru regular mail & I think FED EX charges $14.00 for overnight. Tell them you need them sooner & they'll mail them out.
