Default Extra Or Hidden Charges on "Grand"

First Cruise on 3/10 & traveling w/ 16 &23 yr olds - just want to be prepared as to what are other expenses to be aware of since their charges will be to my acct. and want to keep control of it and let them be aware of charges before they are obligated for them..Also can you keep track of your acct (like on TV in your room??) ..Thanks Becky

Hi there Becky..
For kids.. suggest buying them the unlimited soda card, or you have to keep a very close eye on how fast those purchases add up.
Secondly, with kids, they can purchase "arcade credits" on their shipboard charge cards, so you may want to warn them about overusing that.
And do let them know that the Haagen Daas ice cream charges for their product. Ice cream is ONLY free in the dining room.

Regards,
Kuki

Hi Becky,
Unfortunately, you can't check your account on the TV, but you can go to the purcers deck and have it check out when ever you want. Like Kuki says, the charges do add up quickly, so be careful and have fun!

Becky,
You would not even need the "soda" card for juice, ice tea, and coffee too.
