Default Buying alcohol in cash instead of charging?

Is it possible to pay for your alcohol on the cruise with cash, instead of it being charged on your account?

No, all ships are cashless. but you can go down to the front desk and give them cash before you start spending so you're prepaid in cash.

nope, everything on board the ship goes onto the sign and sail card, even things in the gift shop.

It's a cashless system. None of the shops have any cash on hand. The only place to get cash is at the Purser's (Customer Service) Desk.

As Trackypup said, you can put cash into your account if you want less on your credit card.

Take care,

you could pay cash to one of your fellow passengers and then they buy it for you I suppose.
