Default Casino Money... Card

I was wondering how this all works...

Okay I am a gambler... I am probably bringing about $1500 to gamble with....

All my other expenses I was going to put on my credit card... so I was going to link my Ship card to my credit card...

But I was wondering.. I do not like to carry that much cash around with me, or leave in my room.. Can I have them put it on my card... so that I can withdraw it.... at any time?

Glory ..... can not wait....

If you do that then you will pay 3% on it. I would get travelers checks for the amount to gamble and cash then before you go into the casino. What do you do when you go to casinos's and stay for a few days? Do you trust their safe in the room if so then you can trust the ships safe in the room I would think. Maybe you could put a cash deposit on your sign an sale however they won't keep it separate from anything you spend like on drinks etc. I guess I really don't know the answer and just wanted to blab.. sorry I didn't help.

As Anita mentioned, you will pay 3% on sail-and-sign advances. I used travellers cheques on my last cruise...they even cashed them right at the tables. There is also the cabin safe which I feel is secure.

Have a great cruise and good luck!

Thanks just figured I would ask and see what people said about it....

and yes I ussually use hotel room safes... But figured it might be easier just to "check in" the money on the card..

Actually through Carnival Casino marketing you can pre deposit funds, or set up a line of credit that you can draw on.

What's the 3%? Is that for cash advances?

If you wish to "use" money from your sail and sign account, when you go to the little window in the casino to actually *get* the money they will charge you 3% for the trouble.
