I never cease to be amazed that people will carry large sums of cash around with them - just what is the point? Cash once stolen is entirely unrecoverable and most insurance companies will not cover you for large cash losses. At least with credit/debit cards and a card protection policy one has protection against theft, and you can almost invariably get cash as you want it from ATMs or the ship itself (albeit an a poor exchange rate in the case of the ship.
I thank you for your opinion and your concern, I presumed that there would be a safe in our suite and of course that the safe would be safe! However unfortunately it does not answer my question, but thanks anyway.
As you have not given us a cruise line then yes if the currency on board is the US$ if not you will have to change it back.You will still have to register a credit card with them and pay as much cash as you wish on the last day.you can with some lines pay cash up front but make sure that you can get what ever is left in the kitty.Check with the cruise line when you pick one?
I understand what the Taylors are saying and you might consider next time buying US Travellers Cheques which are safe and RCI ships will change them with no charge. I have never heard of any problem with things being lost from cabin safes though. However to the point of your question. Yes there is no reason why you will not be able to pay you account with cash. I would, however, settle most of it a couple of days before the end of the cruise because the queue at Customer Relations on Indy can be very long on the penultimate and last day. Regards. .....

Thank you very much, this helps a lot. Regards Debbie.
