When I got my RCL card, I got 10,000 points after one charge. That's equal to $100 OBC. Unless you get extra points, than they are not worth the effort. There are many cards that give rebates of 1%, same as ship cards, but also give higher % on other types of purchases (gas, grocery, hardware, etc). An example is the Costco Amex card; 1% plus 2% for travel, 3% restaurants & gas. Book a cruise & airfare totaling $5000 and you have $100 to spend on board.
