Can anyone tell me if I need cash to gamble in the onboard casino or if our ship account is charged and chips given in lieu of the charged amount?

It doesnt matter if you use cash or sail & sign, you wont win like if you were at a regular casino. The blackjack tables were BRUTAL last time i was on a cruise. Maybe its just me......

Thanks for the response.
Can you elaborate on what you mean about 'the fee being rather steep'?

they charge a percentage for useing your sail and sign card I believe its some where around 6 to 10 per cent per 100.00 and you can also use your credit card with a fee also, they do have atms on board you would probably be better off using the atm but I do not recall what the fee was I think they were about 3 or 4 dollars for the atm

I have used my S&S for years and not been charged a fee, then last time I was. I am not sure if was because was cash instead of tokens or what. Will ask today, and find out the deal. Also, I only play slots, and I have pretty good luck. I know just the Lady to ask, she is over the OceanPlayers Club..will check back, if I get some anwsers..best of luck on your cruise!

I gamble regularly at home. The slots are abit tighter than at home here in Canada. They are open only when in the middle of the water a certain distance out. I spent more time at the shows because this is something different for us. We go to Vegas and the shows similare to these cost a pretty penny.I enjoyed them for the cost of the cruise. Save your money
enjoy what the cruise has to offer at no charge.
