    Hello! I read that on the cruise, you are to leave your luggage outside of your door on the last night. How do you manage showers/dressing etc. in the morning if they have already taken your luggage? Thanks!

    Hi Melissa!
    You have an excellent question about the last night of your sailing!  Here is the scoop on how to handle packing and preparing for your disembarkation.  Usually between 10:30-11:00pm, the crew collects luggage from the hallways.  When you are packing up, you will need to set aside a small carry-on bag that you can use for any items you need to keep with you until the next morning.  I always leave out our PJs, toiletries, and clothes for the next day when I'm getting everything ready to be placed outside our stateroom door.  When you wake up the next morning, you can use your carry-on to pack up any clothes from the previous night, PJs, and toiletries.  Then you can take your small carry-on to breakfast with you before getting off the ship.  After you disembark, you will pick up your remaining luggage in the cruise terminal before passing through Customs. 
    Also, you will place character luggage tags on your bags before they are taken on the last night so be sure to remember which character is on your tag so you can easily find your luggage when you get off the ship.  Be sure to keep your passports and birth certificates handy as well!
    I hope this helps make your sea to land transition smooth and seamless!  Please let me know if you think of any other questions before your magical voyage begins!  I'm always here to help!
    Have a wonderful day and bon voyage!
