Actually there is another way to get a cash advance in the casino a little cheaper. If you buy chips on your credit card Carnival charges you only 3%. Then you buy into a game and can cash the chips in at anytime.

You only pay the 3% and it goes on your card as a purchase not an advance so if you pay the balance in full each month there is no interest.

It works, I've done it.

PS - I've heard some cruise lines don't even charge the 3%!
