Default Debit card for supercharge/room key

Hi, What is the minimum amount of money I need in my checking account to use my bank debit card for the supercharge/roomkey on RCCI's Explorer of the seas. I like to carry cash/traveler checks with me and not have to depend on the ATM's; along with their exhorbant on ship ATM fees. Do they also accept cash at the checkin for the key. I guess I'm old school and beleive in paying cash for my vacations; that way I'm not too deppressed when I get home and open my credit card statement. The After Vacation Blues are bad enough! Thanks...Kim

Hi Kim!
Not sure how much money you need in your account but you can use the debit/credit card. We use it every time without a problem. And yes you can pay with cash/travelers check at the end.But you must tell them when you check in. I agree with you, cash is the way to go.Too many people are in debt! Have a great trip and please report back.

I use a credit card with no balance and pay it of upon my return. Not because I am wealthy BUT this way you can dispute the charges IF there is a problem with the final bill (which has happened but cruise line corrected it without having to do a formal dispute). Hope that helps, Robbie

For us it's not a matter of luck ,it's saving money. If you save all year you have the money together. Pinch a penny here and there, save on other things etc. No luck, just being smart and frugal.

I am a little confused as to the debit charge and room key. I always settle my ship board account with a credit card. What is the room key all about?
