Also a lot of shops in foriegn ports charge more if you use credit /debit cards.
Okay, here's a question I'm sure has already been answered somewhere.
If we already have cash on our s&s acount.... (min required $200 each)
can we still use our debit card and if so... at what point would they place the hold on it?
