Porter ?

OK, here's an out-of-left-field question.

I know the porters at San Pedro are not DCL employees, is it the same at PC?

I've learnt a lot from you so I guess I do not understand what your asking since you have already said they do not?

The luggage isn't handled in a very gentle manner, and I wouldn't want to be reseponsible for damaging someone else's (much less mine) stuff because my drinks went through with the checked bags.

I read a recent trip report (on another board) and the person said that the porters at PC were DCL employees. I was just wondering if that had changed.

I wanted to be sure that what I was posting was correct.

Not sure how recent that post was, but we talked to our porter in mid-December at PC and they do not work for DCL, but for an agency that DCL contracts with.

The report was just posted today for a Jan 31 cruise.
