Visa and Mastercard prepaid cards
 
Does anyone know if the ship will accept one of these cards for your onboard expenses? Totally eliminates the possibility of anyone stealing your number, or your identity. Also, I thought using these in smaller amounts would be better to carry for shore excursions. If you have x amount to spend, then you won't spend any more than that.
Thanks

Those are really a good idea, I don't see why they wouldn't work.

Oh good - thats my plan too. A few cards with a limit on it - I wont go overboard (or over limit!) and I wont be paying for the trip for the next year!

ATMs and stores at the ports will take them too?

I was thinking getting an amount of cash in whatever currency when we arrive at port, then I wont have to handle so much cash, which I am not good with ;)
