On the "Hold" thing do you think that they all do it but only HAL have actually said so?.....by the way never use a debit card, any "Hold" they put on that is YOUR money!!
No this type of hold never occured before, maybe since may of 2011 all cruiselines changed their policies?, I dont know. (actually for the royal cruise they never even had our credit card number, we purchased through a travel agent site, boarded the vessel in a port which was not the embarkation port, our keys were ready and brought to us before we boarded the ship in Saint Maarten, they took our pictures as we boarded the ship)
I mean all inclusve through the cruise fare, I have paid for food, shelter, entertainment. We will bring some wine onboard, we wont go to specialty restaurants, nor buy excursions, nor buy alochol onboard. So everything that we need is paid for.
