I am a first time cruiser leaving next Sunday. To ensure I don't spend a fortune on board I want to set up an onboard account by paying with cash and not credit card. When printing my boarding pass, I was required to provide a credit card number. Do I need to sign the boarding pass to gain entry to the ship or can I set up the cash account when I get on the ship?
You can put a cash deposit on your cruise account.
They will request a deposit a deposit of approx 500 US$ per person.
When you start to run short , they will ask you to put more cash on
account. Why not leave the CC and check your balance periodically
and pay it off on a regular basis.
