Default Cash on the credit card

My wife insists that I ask this of you folks.

She seems to think that if I sign for cash at the casino against our ship board account then it will be considerded a cash advance and incur immediate and high interest.

I say that when our bill is submitted to the CC company by the cruise line there will not be a delineation items and they will have no way of knowing.

When I signed for about 1800 bucks on our cruise to Alaska I don't remember my name on a three foot long receipt.

Any input?

Dan

These are NOT treated as cash advances. They are biiled just like purchases.

HOWEVER, many of the cruise lines are now charging a 3% SERVICE FEE.

Royal Caribbean and Celebrity do not charge a service fee.

Thanks for that info Kuki, I'll have to remember that when I finally sail on RCCL. Wonder how long it will last?
