    Weight & Size limits for checking suitcases to board the ship

    Printed my luggage tags for an upcoming Carnival cruise.

    Now, there are weight & size limits on what we are allowed to be checked on these for boarding the ship. About the same as airlines.

    Each suitcase should not weigh more than 50 pounds and not exceed 24"w x 16"h.

    Is this new?

    I know they do this on flights but never for a cruiseline.

    John, I am guessing that your limits are for flying. Lulu, am I reading this right, these are your limits just for the ship?

    Years ago when we were shipping supplies via cruise ship, we were told by one cruiseline (either Carnival, Norwegian or Royal) withthat there was a 200 pound per person limit for luggage, and no number of bags specified. But I haven't checked in at least 3 years..

    On our Adventure OTS cruise, the carry-on luggage had to fit inside an x-ray machine, similar to the airport. I don't recall a bag size limit for the checked bags though.

    I'd never seen this before either for a cruise ship! That's why it surprised me!

    It is clearly stated on the luggage tag instructions for luggage being checked to board the ship. Figured it must be something new.

    Here's exactly what it says....

    NOTE:
    Each suitcase should not weigh more than 50 pounds and not exceed 24"w x 16"h.

    WOW So those coming to the ship that do not have the luggage tags and plan on getting them at the port will be in for a surprise. Luggage sales will skyrocketI just printed my tags for Princess and I do not have that on mine.

    Nothing on the website that is specific................

    4. BAGGAGE, PERSONAL PROPERTY, PROHIBITED ITEMS, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

    (a) Each fully paid adult Guest will be allowed a reasonable amount of luggage on board containing their personal belongings. Luggage means only trunks, valises, satchels, bags, hangers and bundles with their contents consisting of only such wearing apparel, toilet articles and similar personal effects as are necessary and appropriate for the purpose of the journey.
    b) No tools of trade, household goods, presents and/or property of others, jewelry, money, cameras, documents, valuables of any description including but not limited to such articles as are described in Title 46 of the United States Code section 30503 shall be carried except under and subject to the terms of a special written contract or Bill of Lading entered into with Carnival prior to embarkation upon application of the Guest. The Guest warrants that no such articles are contained in any receptacle or container presented by him as baggage hereunder, and if any such articles are shipped in the Guestís baggage in breach of this warranty, no liability for negligence, gross or ordinary, shall attach to Carnival for any loss or damage thereto.
    (c) Carnival shall not be liable for: (1) Guestís failure to comply with the requirements set forth in Clauses 4(a) and 4(b); (2) any loss or damage before baggage comes into Carnivalís actual custody on board or after baggage leaves Carnivalís actual custody on board, including, but not limited to, loss or damage by airlines or other transportation services; (3) any loss or damage of baggage while not in the actual possession, custody and control of Carnival; (4) damage due to wear, tear or normal usage; (5) any loss or damage of perishable items, medicine, liquor, cash, securities or other financial instruments, or (6) any loss or damage while in the custody and control of stevedores.
    (d) It is stipulated and agreed that the aggregate value of Guestís property, does not exceed $50 per guest or bag with a maximum value of $100 per stateroom regardless of the number of occupants or bags and any liability of Carnival for any cause whatsoever with respect to said property shall not exceed such sum, unless the Guest shall in writing, delivered to Carnival, prior to embarkation, declare the true value thereof and pay to Carnival prior to embarkation a sum equal to 5% of the excess of such value. If Carnival shall be held liable for the loss of or damage to Guestís baggage or property it is agreed that such liability shall not exceed the lesser of: (1) the actual cash value, or (2) value declared in the manner above provided (up to U.S. $100 if no such declaration has been made). Declared value amounts to be proportionately reduced in any case where less than all of Guestís baggage or property is lost, delayed or rendered unusable due to damage. In no event shall Carnival be liable to pay any compensation if the nature or value of the property has been misrepresented.
    (e) No Guest is permitted, to bring on board the vessel live animals (other then qualified service animals, with not less than 14 days advance notice given to Carnival). Guest will be solely responsible for any and all damage and/or loss caused by service animals.
    (f) Weapons, firearms, contraband, ammunition, explosives, incendiary devices, or other dangerous items are strictly prohibited aboard the vessel. Carnival reserves the right to confiscate, destroy and/or turn over to authorities these or any other items it deems in its sole discretion to be detrimental to the safety or comfort of any person or which are otherwise improperly in the possession of any Guest. Each Guest warrants that no such articles are contained in any receptacle or container carried or presented as baggage. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited except as provided for in clause 8(f). All Guests agree Carnival has, at all times with or without notice, the right to search Guestís baggage and/or personal effects for any of the prohibited items, at any location, to ensure compliance with these restrictions. Any Guest who refuses any such search or screening, or any Guest traveling with such items, may be denied boarding or disembarked and no refund of the cruise fare will be issued. The Guest will be solely responsible for any and all damage and/or loss caused by his violation of this policy.

    Google...............

    "luggage restrictions" on Carnival's website:

    Guests are encouraged to limit their checked luggage to two suitcases
    per person, with each suitcase not to weigh more that 50 pounds and
    not exceed 16"h x 24"w x 30"length.
