Nobody on board takes or handles cash except the customer services desk.
So how are you going to pay for the gratuities anything else your going to buy?
I am not going to buy anything, I already paid for an all inclusive I dont need to buy anything else, I will prepay gratuities, then tell them I dont want charging priviledges on the room keys. In theory if what HAL is saying is true then there would be no reason to place the hold, I dont want a 1680 hold on my account. Dont know why this would be a problem with HAL, but we will see. I will let everyone know
