Are there computers on board the O ships that you can used to check in for your homeward flight, and is there any charge for printing your boarding passes?

When I was on Riviera last year there were computers that could be used to print your boarding passes and there was no charge

it used to be 25 cents per printed sheet it is added to your onboard account automatically
I do not bother printing them off anymore since I usually go to the counter to check my bag anyway

With cruise luggage in tow, printing the Boarding Pass on the ship does not save ANY time or effort later. Let the lovely Airlines Agent do it. .

I am resisting change as long as I can

I bypass the kiosks at the airport that print baggage tags as well

If this is an international flight you have to see an agent with your passport - don’t waste your time printing a boarding pass.

I am sure you didn’t mean that to sound so aggressive! I was just pointing out something that people from the US might not be aware of, judging by the previous comments. And printing out your boarding pass yourself is the way to avoid silly fees.

what do they charge for boarding passes ?

Seems silly but I guess it is a way for them to get more $ or GBP from people

Ryanair recently announced it will be £55!

If you are in Europe, the budget airlines are often your only choice for getting from A to B.

That can't be right?

If one is on an O ship and has access to either of the Lounges, the attendant there will typically do it for you for free.

On a R ship, I believe there is a small charge.

Have never needed to fly a “discount “ carrier in Europe, so never had the need to preprint the pass. Friends that live part time outside of Salzburg use them regularly. He’s never really sure he’s ever saved money using them after all the fees and hassle.

Yes, if you have a choice of carrier it is best to do the sums before making a booking. Though as I said, often there is no choice.

Only once in 6 Oceania cruises have I been able to get a boarding pass printed for me by staff. I have been refused multiple times by front desk, computer room and Concierge lounge staff who tell me to do it myself and print cost of 25 cents per page must be charged to my stateroom account. I usually just wait to get my boarding when I check my bag at the airport.

No offense intended, but frankly I'm glad that you were refused.

Enabling Oceania Staff to sign onto an Airlines Website in order to print those passes would involve giving out Passwords which they have no business having and which you ought not to be so free about giving out .

I would NEVER share log in credentials and from my experience it is never necessary to log in to an airline's website to get a boarding pass. I just go to "check in" option and enter locator code for my flight. Sharing locator code is not a problem in my opinion.

Of course if I am checking in myself I do have the option of logging in and accessing a "my flights" or similar section of the website in order to check in, but I have never found logging in to be a necessary step to check in and get a boarding pass for a flight.
