Default Sign and Sail Card Managment

Any tips on managing the Sign and Sail Card on a Carnival Cruise. On my my prior cruises I saw some passangers who had punched a hole in and wore it around their neck. Any Ideas? In the past, I've had some problems loosing my card on the lido deck.

Punching a hole in the card and carrying it on a lanyard around your neck is a good way of keeping track of your card. Most ships sell the lanyard or you can bring one from home.

They sell them in most sporting goods stores and many companies now have them for personnel who require security cards.

I personally use a small card wallet that I received from Renaissance cruises. I keep it in the cruise bag. I just stick it in my pocket. In fifteen cruises I have yet to lose it, except for short times in the cabin. I have known people who have lost their card and have just gone to the pursers desk and have had a new one made.

Take care,

A lanyard is the best bet if you fear losing your Sail & Sign. My friends laughed at my "idiot string", but guess who didn't lose her card on the "Fiesta Party Boat"! My "idiot string saved the day, and my friend now has his sail and sing floating around the gulf somewhere!

I use a fishing license holder on a strap for mine. You can also put some cash or a credit card in it when you're in port. Works great when you go snorkeling too. You can keep it all with you in the water and not have to worry about it.

They also sell plastic holders with neck lanyards in the shops on board.

If you ask in the casino on a Carnival ship they will punch it for you and also give you a stretchy coil cord for free. This is great if you are using your card to rack up comp points. I tended to walk off and leave my card in the slot machine.
