Default travelers checks

We're sailing on the Carnival Inspiration in August. I've read posts about using debit cards, credit cards and cash for the Ship & Sail cards. How about travelers checks? Do I dare to assume they are acceptable to set up these accounts. is there one of these methods that makes sign up easier?

Thanks very much

We used a credit card to set up the Sign & Sail account, then used travelers cheques to pay off the balance. I don't know if you can set up the account using the travelers cheques or not...

Once you sign a traveller's check, it's treated just the same as cash.

The easiest way to set up an onboard account is a credit card. They swipe the card, and off you go. If you like you can pay off the account at the end of the cruise, or wait for your cc statement, and pay it then.
