Debit Cards

Does the cruise line let you use debit cards as your credit card?? Ours can be used either way.

For sure they can, but as a banker, here are a couple of tips.

1. Check with your bank and find out if you have a daily dollar limit for point of sale (credit type) transactions. They can vary from bank to bank. Once you know, you can ask guest services to charge the card in those increments.
2. Let your bank know you'll be traveling and using your card. Otherwise their fraud detection systems could flag and freeze the card for unusual activity.

I agree with the above post. My bank only allows $1000.00 per every 24 we had to fill out a form increasing our limit for the trip. We also found out that we have to call within 24 hours of the account being charged to activate the increase (which is going to stink being we'll probably have to pay roaming charges to call from the boat) Each bank may be different, so I would check with your bank before you leave.
