Cruise luggage tags: A printable PDF with a TPG twist

After you’ve checked in for your cruise, you won’t want to forget your luggage tags — and I don’t mean the hard plastic ones with your contact information that you attach to your suitcases in case your bags are lost.

Your cruise line will generally provide you with a PDF file of luggage tags to print as part of your electronic travel documents when you’ve completed your registration and provided your necessary details. However, if you’re tired of the same old cruise line luggage tags, check out our special TPG version below.

How to print the cruise luggage tags

  • Click the link above to open the PDF version of the luggage tag. (You must have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer.)
  • Click the printer icon near the top right corner of the screen.
  • Select your printer; make any necessary adjustments to page orientation, size and color; and set the number of copies you’ll need. (Print one copy per piece of luggage that you plan to leave with porters when you arrive at the terminal. You don’t need them for items you plan to personally carry onto the ship with you.)
  • Click the “print” button.

How to attach the cruise luggage tags

  • Using a pen, print your name, the ship’s name and your sailing date and cabin number on the lines provided.
  • Flip the page over so the printed side is facing down.
  • Starting at one end, fold the paper twice, longways, toward the middle, using the printed lines as guides.
  • Repeat step three from the other end. (The goal is to have a long, skinny strip that displays only the portion of the tag with the TPG logo and lines for your information, with the rest of the page folded underneath to make it thicker.)
  • Slide the tag face down through the handle on your suitcase.
  • Overlap the two ends so the yellow bars line up, creating a ring, and staple or tape the tag in place.

Tip: If you’re flying to your embarkation destination, wait until after your flight to attach the tags to your luggage so they don’t detach during transit.

If you think you need a sturdier way to display your luggage tag information, I recommend these protective cruise luggage tag holders that are reusable and won’t rip like paper does.
