Luggage tags Question


hannahsmomtoo

Recommended Posts

So...

 

I received ( and paid for ) FTTF ( due to some circumstances that are irrelevant ) after they were sold out.

 

SO

 

I do not have "FTTF" printed on any of my documents OR my luggage tags.. Just a letter from Carnival stating when I arrive, my cabin *is* a FTTF Cabin....

 

Here is my question -

 

Are the FTTF luggage tags special or do the porters just put a special ticket on them?

For example - can I put my tags on, show the porter the letter and have some "sticker" or something added....so I can leave my bags...?

 

or should I NOT print my tags at all and wait til we get to the port and have someone else print them if they are "different"...?

 

Thank you !!!!

Did you print your documents/tags after your purchase of FTTF? I know when I purchased mine it stated that you needed to re-print them if you had previously printed your docs.

I researched FTTF a lot before my purchase and found that there should be FTTF or a logo on your docs and tags.

The luggage tags do indeed have the FTTF logo on them and the porters do indeed put special stickers on the luggage.

 

As to whether you should print now or wait until you get to the port, those are good questions. We've had very friendly, patient porters and we've had some that would not even say hello. If you got the former, then showing the letter works. If not, then probably not.

 

At least I was able to help with the first half of your query. :D

Carnival was not able to add the FTTF listing to my docs because I was given FTTF after they sold out. Which is why I have their letter for port.

I understand that normally the docs say FTTF -- this is a different circumstance though

:) Well I appreciate the HALF you did help with - really !

 

My tags are not going to say FTTF on them.. but maybe I will get a nice porter who will just add the sticker based on the letter..

 

( would be much easier than taking the family's luggage thru the line with us just to get different luggage tags printed )

Go ahead and apply your tags. Show the letter to the porter and they will put the special (orange in my case) labels on the bags. Show your letter at the door and you will be escorted to get your card that should have the FTTF logo on it and you are all set.

Faster to the fun. It's awesome, hope it opens for our January trip.

 

I booked it for our trip in March... It's my first time booking it, but also our first time driving to the port so I plan on bringing on some water/soda so it will be nice to be able to get to our room instead of lugging that stuff around the ship with us waiting for our room to be available.

I've never done it, but I would probably go ahead and print the tags and then show the porter the letter and have them mark your luggage - surely they will??!!? Good luck!!!

 

OT - I thought your cruise left on Sept 26...apparently I was wrong! lol! Dare I ask how it worked out with your daughter's friend? I'll keep an eye out for your review!!! :) Happy sailing!!!

Porters will not care they will say something to please you so you can give them a bigger tip. Just reprint your luggage tags.

Aw, I was afraid it would work out that way. So sorry. :( Hard when you try to do something nice for someone and it doesn't work out. Hope you and your girl have a extra great time!
