Default Bank accounts


I was wondering what most crew members do with regards to bank accounts and banking. I am starting in March / April and understand I will receive pay as cash. What do most people do to get money home and reduce bank fees. Any information given on the best way to manage my money at sea would be great.

Cheers Tori.

Honestly - most of them just keep it on board (and yes, it does get stolen if you are stupid). A lot of crew cabins have safes just like the passenger cabins do. The ship may offer a "bank" also.

Depending on where the ship goes, you could open an account in a bank on shore.

Oh my god. I had so many problems. I have citibank, but I couldn't deposit money, unless we were docking on a sunday and I had to find my bank, so I just kept all the money in a safety box onboard....You kind of just hold onto it until you leave...Its better that way...Plus, you end up spending a lot more than you anticipate...
