Default ATMS

Just checking to see about using ATM cards. Are there any on ship and also what about at the ports. How safe is it? Saw a show on the use of ATM machines and how the owner of the machines were able to get a reading of your card and access your account!! My card is not a debit card that you can use at any merchant, just checking and covering all my bases. Thanks for any help.

There are ATM machines onboard and there is a $5 fee for their use.

24 cruises and counting!

One more tip about the ATM they will run out of money and they do not restock it or at least they didn't on the ship I was sailing with. So if you think you will need money go the first couple of days of the cruise

The ATM's on the ship charge a pretty hefty service fee and tend to run out of cash at the end. I personally won't used an ATM machine in a port unless it was actually inside a bank (which I have seen several times). But we bring along more then we think we will need in cash and travelers checks and then just cash the travelers checks at the pursers desk as we need more cash. Would rather have to much along then to little and get stuck in a jam.

About how much do you think is reasonable to take for a 7 day cruise? First I was thinking 1000, then I heard less????
