Great info, thanks. As you can see I will be a first timer, so all info is good.
This sign and sail card you speak of, I assume this is merely your "credit card" (if you will), that you use to purchase items while on board. Can you not pay directly for drinks and such when you order them, or all they all put on a tab. Also, I assume each person (me, wife, two teen age daughters) gets their own card (even though I will be paying for all of it).
