Default sign and sail

I recieved my DOCs the other day and have a question from all the cruise veterans out there. In order to get the best rate possible we, at the recommendation of our vacation planner, booked the rooms on the ship in such a way that we have 1 senior in each cabin. (regardless of who that senior is married to. ie. I am with me father-in-law, my wife is with her aunt...) Is this going to cause a problem with the sign and sail? My wife and I want to be on the same account. How does this work?

If I'm not mistaken, your sail & sign is also your room key/ID. I remember having only one credit card on that cabin. This only means that the 4 of you need to make sure that "she" doesn't charge something to her S&S when it's actually going to hit your account. "She" could have a tough time getting into the room too. I would think that you may be able to switch rooms once you set sail. Never tried that one. I think it's tricky but possible.

You can in fact change rooms, just see the purser. As for the S&S charges, simply fill out individual forms using the CC of your choice for each individual.

Does each person in the cabin get their own card to be used as their room key/ID/Sign and Sail card?
We have a similar problem in that we have 4 people 21 or younger, so the TA had to mix us up in the rooms. If we can assign a different CC to each individual, that would really help solve part of the problem.

Yes each person will get their own card, and if you really needed to, you could have 4 different credit cards, 1 for each person. So like Jim mentioned, at check in, tell them what credit card you want used for what room key.

Yes, you should visit the Purser when you first board the ship and make sure you are the only person on your sail-n-sign account not your Aunt or Uncle.

Yes, the sail-n-sign card is your room key; and is placed in a machine which identifies you as a passenger when exiting and entering the ship. This is also how they know if you are allowed aboard the ship; the authorities checks you out each time you board.

I don't know if they can put you and your wife on the same account. Are you in the same cabin? If you are there should not be a problem.
