Default Visa Check Cards

My husband and I are going to use our Visa Check Card for our "Sign and Sail". Since it's a check card and not a credit card, will Carnival put some sort of hold on funds??

Hi Kelly,
I didn't use mine on the last curise but I doubt they would as they don't put anything on your credit card until the last day of the cruise, but rest assured if the card won't process, they won't let you off the ship until they have another credit card or cash payment. Have a great trip.

I used my Visa check card without any problems. They do put a $300 hold on your card, but it is released as soon as your account clears.

Tom..do they put a 300. hold on your debit card per person or is that per couple? What do you mean it is released when your account clears? Do they hold 300. on the card until the end of the trip? Please let me know. Thanks, Chrissy

I just got back home yesterday and they did NOT put a hold on funds. Or, if they did, the hold was lifted by the time I got back home. I checked my bank account, and there was no hold. This was on CCL Celebration.
