Default How much is the hold on credit card used for Sail & sign

I understand they put a "hold" on the credit card you use for the Sail & Sign account. How much of a hold is it for 2 people on a 4-day cruise? I'm planning to bring 2 credit cards, one has a $3000 limit, the other is $2500 and on the date we sail there should be only a minimal balance on each ($100-200). So I think I should be okay if I use the $3000 limit card to secure the S&S card. I would use the other one for any purchases in ports.

The initial hold is $250... so all should be well.

You will have plenty of credit.

How many more days do you have?

19 days from today we will fly to Florida and we sail in 20 days.

I'm so excited! I only have a few things to do or get for the trip!

Michelle, be sure to notify your credit card companies that you will be on a cruise, so your purchases won't throw up a "red" flag.

Not long now! Are you excited, yet?

Hi Darlene! Yes, I am SO READY!!! yesterday I notified one of the 2 credit card banks and my ATM card bank - I'll be notifying the other credit card bank today. Unfortunately, I have to bring my debit card, because that's what I used to charge the taxes on my free airfare so I have to show along with my e-ticket to get my boarding passes. They all know not only my port city and excursion cities, but the cities I'll be having flight stopovers in!

I keep looking at photos of Sensation on webshots.com and I can't believe I'll actually be on the ship myself very soon!
