Absolutely. Do not use the ME luggage tags because you won’t see your luggage for a long time. Just pick it up and head over to the MS check in. The driver will place your luggage on the bus and you just grab it at the resort. (A tip to the driver is appreciated to be sure.) If your room isn’t ready at check in just leave your bags with bell services.
Do not put the DCL cruise line tags on the luggage until you are taking the bus to the cruise. Once you hit the port, anything other than what you carry on will have to have a cruise line tag. It will appear in front of your cabin later in the afternoon.
Doing the eastern or western cruise? If you do the western, at Grean Caymen make sure you take a few minutes to visit “heck” and the devil. He’s a friendly chap and while the wages of sin might be death, you can get to “heck” [I][B]and back [/B][/I]for only $5 on the local bus service - really vans.
I am SO ready for another cruise!
