Is your sign and sail card the room key on Destiny or is there separate key like on several of the older ships?

Its the same IF it works. two weeks ago when we were on the Destiny they had a mishap with a bad batch of keys and just about everyone on the ship ended up with sign and sail cards that would not work as a room key...boy to have that many people standing at the pursurs desk was loads of fun. They gave us 2 free tickets for drinks which we needed after that.

It's the same as the sail & sign, as baby doll noted. I am glad they gave baby doll something for having to wait in line. Even when they don't make a mess up with the batch, the darn things can be difficult. I am glad too that they wised up several years ago and quit putting the cabin numbers on them!

Lucky you, I sailed Destiny the end of Feb and my room key stopped working and I got a new one, which also didn't work, so they did it again but warned me that my wife card would now not work, so I needed to track her down and get hers changed as well. Through it all they were very nice and smiling but I didn't get any drinks out of it. Perhaps I should have asked if they could compensate me for the trouble. I did get good exercise climbing to deck 8 and back.

There was a line around and looped through the lounge. I think if YOU had problems and we did and the ones after us then it wasn't just a bad batch of keys. You would think after one cruise they would have made sure the next ones coming on wouldn't have to deal with that. I take it all with a grain of salt, but not like some that were pretty hot spending their vacation in line for so long. Whats a little key mishap with the great line of islands to visit. I had the best time of any cruise I have been on of all 9 of them.

I take things like that in stride as well. Why get worked up over it and have a sour attitude that spoils your cruise is my thinking. I don't know if they have ever replaced the door readers on the Destiny. If not they are most likely worn out.
