when to expect cruise goodies

When should I expect our cruise package with documents, and more importantly (lol) our luggage tags?! We are 39 days out and I am running to the mailbox every day in hopes of finding these in there.

I'm cruising on 4/20 and I have mine already. Had them for about a week.

Typically about 30 days out, so any time now!

When I book with a travel agent my cruise docs always take longer. Usually a week or two after everyone else got theirs. So frustrating.

If you use a TA, then the documents are sent by DCL to the TA, and the TA then mails them to you. Hence the extra delay.

This does not happen with all TAs. We've always received our own documents direct from DCL & have always used a TA. Perhaps where the documents go is something the TA requests?

We use Dreams Unlimited but our cruise documents come directly from DCL. We are at 27 days and haven't gotten our yet, but we just booked about 2 weeks ago. Hopefully, they will come soon.
