We always use Credit cards at the ports. It more easy and you don't have to worry about how much cash to take. We have done this for the past 4 years and had no issues yet with someone trying to use our card. You must keep a close watch on your statement and report any unusal activties at once. We have had several unusal activities in the US, like Mytle Beach where someone tried buying something. So the point of this si that no manner what place you go, you can always run into issues with your credit card, but we find it safer. We hardly ever carry cash. Also the point about taking private tour, all of the posts are right on. Be back on time or else!!! The last cruise we were on we saw a police boat coming toward our ship after it left with 2 couples on it who missed the ship. They got very lucky.
