Default payment - cash AND card?

OK, silly question, sure it's been asked before in some form or another, but here goes again.

I am a rookie, after all, so I'm entitled to such questions!

I wish to use my debit card, yes, to pay off my sign & sail at the end of the cruise - BUT - I wish to put a $400 cash deposit down the first day, then pay the remaining balance with my debit card. Long story short, I want to do this because I don't get paid from work until mid-way through the cruise, and I know they put the $200 hold on immediately, so I don't want this to be a potential problem since the $$ isn't in there right away.

SO - is it okay to pay part cash and part debit/credit for the Sign & Sail?

Or, *duh*, maybe I should just depost the $400 cash I would put on the card into my account before I leave, and not have to worry about it at all :o)

That would make more sense, non?

You don't need to use a credit card or debit card. You may put cash down instead. They will only allow you to spend what is put down on your sail and sign card. If they feel you are getting too low they will ask you to come down to the purser's office and put more cash down. Be aware that the the whole tip amount for the week may come off your sail and sign account the first day. In my opinion, that was better than waiting 'til the end of the week because it was out of the way and you could spend away.

Thanks everyone - I know I don't HAVE to use my debit, but my paycheck will be in there later in the week, so it makes sense to at least pay part from that :o)

Yeah, I think I'll just deposit like $400 right up front to cover the $140 in tips, and any early-week excursions we book. Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

5 more days, so SO much is swirling around in my head :o)
