Is there a hold put on the credit card
Sailing first time on RCL...just wanted to know if there is a hold (what amt) when you use your credit card for your acct. on the ship. And...if I'm using a debit card vs a credit card?

hehe...we had same topic/questions today. I think to be safe, we've decided to give them the credit card for our onboard purchases, and we'll be using our debit card, atm machine for purchases away from the ship...I don't my credit card to be unavailable if the cruise company has it all on hold, if I want to buy lunch in a port city or purchase souvenirs.

make sure you both let your bank/credit card companies know where you will be going so they do not put a stop on your cards when they see a foreign purchase. happy sailing!

Yeah don't use a debit card to put on file. I did that on my honeymoon and they put a hold on all my money and we couldnt even get out money for gas for the way home.
