111 days until we cruise…..woohoo!
The Sign ‘n Sail card is your room key, your ship ID card and your charge card for things on the ship. During check-in each person is given a Sail ‘n sign card, even Uriah.
Sign ‘n Sail is Carnival’s on board cashless credit program, which allows you to charge all your services, gratuities and purchases during your cruise to your stateroom. All locations on board will accept your Sign ‘n Sail card for payment; the casino will also accept cash. As a side note, when gambling always use cash so you know what your spending.
A credit card or cash deposit is needed to establish your personal on board account. After reading up on the deposits to your Sign ‘n Sail card this is what I have learned. At check-in you will be asked for a credit card or cash to set-up your Sign ‘n Sail account. If giving a credit card or debit card Carnival will put a hold on your card for approximately $1000. Please be aware that even if you don’t spend that much on the ship the money will be held for up to three days after the cruise. If you use cash, which is what Scott & I will be doing, you can put $200 down and then add to your account as needed.
On the tv in your stateroom there is a guest services channel that updates you on all of your expenses to date. Please check it often so there won’t be any surprises at the end of the cruise. Hate for you to go home broke as hell! If you pay cash and have an available balance at the end of the cruise Carnival will give you a check on the last day as part of your check out.
To keep your Sign ‘n Sail card on you at all times the casino offers guests a free lanyard. If it’s free it’s for me!
