Whether a debit card is in joint names is irrelevant, so not a problem. Just one card to register with the ship on check-in will do the trick, they can then sort out the split between themselves. ........... But Thomson don't accept all debit cards, so they should check their brand of card/s with Thomson (preferably by e-mail & print-off/take the reply) .......... beware - some cruiselines (I dont know about Thomson) put a hold on funds at the outset when a DEBIT card is registered, in case there's not enough funds at the end of the cruise. This can cause problems with eg mortgage & other DDs or drawing cash from ATMs if they're relying on salary payments into the account during the cruise - so they need to maintain a good bank balance. ....... if they don't have an acceptable card, they'll be asked at check-in to load their on-board account with cash, at a guess around £200, within the next 24 hours or thereabouts. They may be asked to add more cash later if their balance runs low, but their AI package will help a lot to keep the bill down. Then at the end of the cruise they go along to settle-up & get back any overpayment. But its a bit of a tiresome business & they may join a long & slow-moving queue to settle-up. With a card registered they wont have that bother, no need to "check-out" unless there's an error on their on-board account. ........... worth considering getting a credit card just for the cruise? Costs nothing to obtain, no interest or other costs if they settle up within a few weeks after their cruise. Then cut up the credit card & throw it away. Saves a lot of hassle on the cruise & a useful emergency fund. ............... Chris.
