Default Has Anyone Lost Their Cruisecard Ashore?

I'm wondering what happens when someone looses their cruisecard ashore... and how big a hassle it is to get back onboard. I've never seen it, but it must happen all the time.

OUrs was stolen along with other belongings in St. Marteen once-- all we had to s how our identity was t he ship's towel!-- A brief check with s ecurity was all we needed-- however I wonder if we were not a "white" f amily if it would have been so easy. Later we wondered if someone could have used the cards to board! We had them change the key--

Anyone ever been on a ship with a stowaway? We had this happen last summer on the Grandeur-- very hush hush with the staff-- but some talked.

Barbara,

Princess's A-PASS security system actually is quite sophisticated. When you put your cruise card in the slot to register your return aboard ship, the system displays your photograph for the security monitor who compares it with your face. This process prevents a "local" from using a stolen card to stow away aboard a Princess ship.

Barbara,

Princess's security personnel do have alternate means to verify your identity. The process is a little more complicated so the cruise line obviously does everything it can to encourage passengers to protect their cruise cards, but it probably happens to a few passengers in each port of call if the truth be told. Once back aboard, you simply go to the Purser's Desk to get a new cruise card.

Norm.
