Also, it IS possible to use only cash to back up your Sea Pass Card; you do not have to use a credit card. If I'm remembering properly, the ship will limit your "credit" to lumps of $500.00, and then notify you that you have reached that limit, and ask you to set up another lump payment, or something similiar to that process. I'm remembering when my whole family was on Liberty back a few years, the dock people who checked us in somehow screwed up my credit card that I had given them for cruise expenses, and had set our room up as a "cash account". This was back when we boarded ship in Miami, and it was a total cluster at that port and time. If this has changed (cash accounts), another here will let us both know. we were on Freedom last Fall-she's a great ship!! Have a great cruise!!
