Breakaway key card and A/C


Recommended Posts

Thanks to all for all your good info. Just wondering; if you don't leave your key card in the cabin slot and you are out and about for a long time on a hot day; how warm is the cabin when you return and how long does it take for the A/C to bring the cabin back to a comfortable temperature? I would like to comply with the cruise lines efforts to conserve energy rather than leave a "dummy" card in the slot.

When we first walked into our room there was a blank sea card in the slot that I assume our stateroom attendant put there. Never had to worry about it. I believe any card with a magnetic stripe will work.

A/C was never a problem for us on the Bermuda itinerary. When we left the room, the A/C would moderate down a few notches. But it was quite quick to cool down the room when we turned down the temperature again.


Beware, though that the A/C would turn off when the balcony door was open.
