This is a fantastic thread that morphed into something more than it set out to be. I used to travel with T-Checks all the time because they are like cash and taken everywhere but I have not used them in years.
So someone said 100 dollars a day or so in cash, that's not for all tips I am assuming, that is for tipping and other things off of the ship correct? Also, if I was to buy something in port, I would think i could use a credit card, or is cash just better? I totally didn't think about bringing cash, I was just going to put most of it on my cc as I pay it off every month. So thank you for this post. As silly as it may seem to most of you, its the little things that get overlooked that can dampen your vacation experience.
