USing a debit card can be messy IF your BF has a daily limit to how much he can spend. Have him call the bank and find out. If there is a daily limit have it lifted while you are away.


if you have a daily limit and its not done your account can be frozen and you will have no access to your monies when you get back for a few days-- (could take up to a week to clear)

Use cash. When you check in you tell them and then they have you go to the pursers desk once on board to put the cash on. It is very easy. I don't know if you have the option to monitor your account via the tv in your room. If you do monitor it and when getting low go put more on.

At the end of the cruise they will give you a check for unused $ which you can either cash or bring home and deposit. I had a balance of 60 cents and just left it.:D

Does anyone know if you can put down cash and also link a credit card to your account to be used after the cash runs out?


When the cash runs out, they will let you know, at which time you can go down and put a credit card down.
