You can use any of the choices you mentioned, but they prefer Credit Card as it makes life easier for everyone. Do you really want to stand in a queue the length of a football field on the last morning to settle your account? Not the best way to end a cruise. Put it on the card, pay it off in full at the end of month, job done!

You can go and make cash deposits [if you have a winning streak from the casino !]during the cruise, but as Wilba says, put it on your creditcard. No debit cards accepted, and I wouldn't bother with travellers cheques, as you have to convert these to cash first so it is still a hastle.

When you check in to board the ship at Miami the best answer is to show your credit card, which they swipe through the computer and return there and then. After that the card they give you to open your cabin door also acts as a payment card for anything (drinks, spa, any shopping goods, shore excursions etc) that you "purchase" on the ship. You can chech your on-board account at any time via your cabin TV set. If you feel a mistake has occured, sort it out right away rather than leaving it till the last day. That way you can keep tabs on your spends without having to carry money around - except, of course, if going ashore.

By Jodie Baldwin

My last blog was about my partner actually taking his first cruise . My blog today has been done by Mike who tells us about his first cruise experience. Today is part 1 with part 2 to follow next time. Here goes!The idea of a cruise never really ‘floated my boat’. Hundreds actually thousands of people lumped onto a vessel, fighting for space and corralled for a least a week . No- not for me. On the other hand , if your partner is employed by one of the largest cruise travel agenci...

Over the last few years here at we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough. Top of my river cruising bucket list has to be the Mekong, gliding through Vietnam and Cambodia – one day I hope!You would think that river cruising would be perfect for people with limited mobility, smaller ships with less passengers on, only three decks etc, but is river cruising really ideal for wheelchair an...
