I am traveling on the Celebration on the 18th. I would like to know if you use the blue card when you gamble or do you need cash, or cc. I really have loads of questions so if there is a chat room that I can go to that would be a help.

Hi Sherry,
The casinos on ships use cash only. However, u use a credit card to secure you "Sail & Sign Card" (the blue card), and use the "Sail & Sign" for all your shipboard purchases.
You can use the card for purchasing chips in the casino ( I believe Carnival allows $500/day for casino on the card). And this is charged against your credit card as a sale, not a cash advance, so no service charges apply.

Here's a link to our Cruise Chat.. it's hosted Monday to Friday beginning at 9PM EST <http://www.cruisemates.com/Chatin.cfm>

Drop in . There's always a helful and fun bunch of cruisers hanging around.

Hi, Sherry ...

I have to warn you ... sometimes chat could be called gamling :o)

I'm the First Time Cruisers Editor around here. If you'd like to set up a private chat sometime, just let me know. Has to be this week, because we're off on the Annual Golf Cruise on Friday.

Donna is extremely knowledgeable as is everyone on staff here, so don't hesitate to e-mail any of us.
