Yes, fredo. I agree with you on that one. I always end up having to take my credit card up to the sun deck with me, unnecessarily. It would be nice to be able to leave it in our cabin, locked up.

Use a sail and sign from a previous cruise.

I have never had a problem with anything in a room safe. Also never heard of anyone else having a problem.

Anything with a magstrip will work. If you don't have an old Sail & Sign card an expired credit will work too.

You guys always have the best advice! I wouldn't have even thought about bringing an old card. That is a great idea! This will work out great! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I used it for my last cruise. It works great, doesn't look like anything of value so you can take it with you to the pool/beach and not worry and, worst case is you just lose a free souvenir from a previous cruise.

If you don't have an old sail & sign, take a library card, supermarket discount card, anything that has a magnetic strip and looks like it is worth zero.

I consur with what everyone said. But one question...I notice you open and close it with your sign and sail/room key. Is there a charge? Probably a silly question...but just curious.

Hahahahahaha. No charge. About the only time you can use your sail and sign card for free.

Note: Do not use your current sail and sign card for the safe. If you do use it for the safe, it will deactivate it as your door key and you will have to go to the purser's desk to get a new one.

Block Buster video card or VISA. On some ships you punch in a series of numbers, that way anyone staying with you in the room can use the same code.

IBCRUZZIN'- Since when does using your Sign and Sail card for the safe de-activate it for door key? I ALWAYS use the S&S card for the safe and never have had a problem. Seems kind of over protective to bother carrying around a second card just for the safe. It kind of defeats the purpose of a S&S card. And agreeing with everyone else, you could leave everything out on the desk and you wouldn't have to worry about it being stolen, so why the "extra security step" of not using your S&S card.

Anyone else run into the problem that IBCRUZIN suggests?

Another thought I have seen on this board is to go buy a $10 or $20 international phone card and use it for the safe. At the end of the cruise, hand it to your steward for an extra tip.
