Bandrews,

We have friends going with us that want to use their debit cards. Are they allowed? They will be sailing with us on the Diamond Sept.

AFAIK, it's the same as cash.

That said, your friend should be aware that the debit card is a very bad idea in general. With a debit card, a fraudulent charge means that the money is gone from your account until the bank fixes the error and restores the cash. With a credit card, by contrast, the money does not actually leave your bank account until you pay the bill so fraudulent charges cannot wipe out your account.

Norm.
