Let me reiterate a point made by Lifeisgd. Do NOT wait until the last day to go over your account record. There will invariably be a long line of people who have waited until the last minute to dispute a charge. Review your account as often as you wish but make sure that you make it a priority before the last day of the cruise or you are going to waste a lot of your precious time standing in line. To echo what the others have said, we always use a CREDIT card to back up our account and have yet to have a problem that was not easily resolved. Soda cards are great and my wife uses a Carnival or RCCL souvenir cup everyday to take her ice water to her office. Some people get a little queasy on their first cruise so it's nice to know that you can get ginger ale on the fountain fun card.
