Default Watch your receipts for your sail and sign !!!

My sister and I had a big laugh after everything was fixed. But, Watch your receipts !!!

My sister felt like a munchie so we stopped at the Galleria for a snack.
She bought a bag of M&M's.

The next day we were reviewing our receipts to precalculate how much we spent so far.
Her receipt said 174 bags of M&M's for over $ 200.00
Now that's the Munchies. ""

dear first-timer - you can check your bill at anytime during the cruise at the Purser's desk. If you have any problems with charges on your bill the Purser's Desk is the place to go.

The bill is delivered to your cabin on the final night. That gives you time to get any problems taken care of. It won't include any final charges, but is up to date on that day.

Our M&M situation was caught early. so all we had to do was go back to the Galleria (where we bought the ONE bag of M&M's at) and they credited us for the other 173.

We just got off the Glory, and there was a menu option on the TV to view your portfolio. It gave you the day, where, and the amount of the transaction. Someone mentioned that they were being charged at places for drinks, that they were never at. I noticed this as well, but what happens is, say you are in the dining room and you order a soda, the bar staff is assigned at different stations, that they bring your drink from, that's why it might say disco, when you were never at the disco. Just as someone else mentioned, they will give you a final statement, for you to look over the night prior to your departure, if there is a problem it can be resolved right away at the purser's desk.

On the Radiance - you could look on a particular channel on your cabin tv & see what your balance is. Man! I have tried hiding the fact that I ate a package of M&M's before - that that is a lot of empty packages to hide!

cruisequeen:
sometimes the drinks that appear on your tab are where the waitress got them from. I had alot from the sports bar and was going to question it, until i realized that was the nearest bar to the dining room during dinner.
