Something must have happened. No one was telling the reason why the policy changed 10/31/14 on CC day.
DCL will no longer handle PP's for any stamps, regardless of port/reason.
Except at CC, .... sort of. If you go to GS at 8:00 - 8:20, or your similar window for your sailing, you can wait for the official to come upstairs and take your PP downstairs to get stamped. If the Bahamian official is willing that docking you may have success. Sometimes the Bahamanian Official is not willing to stamp a bunch of PPs, depending on ..., fwiw.
Still worth a visit to GS if you are interested in PP stamps at CC regardless of anyone's comments, ... trust me. Let your desires be known to GS that am super early, and surprisingly things happen, regardless of any statements you may have heard prior throughout the cruise.
On our recent sailing three families were waiting for this service. We all sat opposite GS in the chairs for said official to take our PP(w/o a receipt I may add). Eventually a DCL officer appeared and took our PPs. I'll guess 14 -22 ~ PPs. Only half that # of pax were waiting , IYKWIM. IOWs only six pax were waiting for 20 PP stamps. ~
Needless to say we were successful with the CC PP stamps this time.
As implied, I got the feeling this is a random event, and the DCL officer emphasized that point. So, .... plan accordingly.
But the age of DCL handling any PP is over , except as described above unfortunately.
