This will be my first cruise so not sure how they do the bar thing?.
When you go to the bar for a beer, do you pay with cash or do you just give them your cabin number? or do they give you some sort of credit card? or all of the above? Do you tip everytime? I heard this is added to your bill already, not sure? Can you bring your own can beer aboard? and would this be ok to walk around with one of your own?
Really looking forward to this cruise in Feb.
Thanks in advance

Cruisethisfeb,
All cruise ships use a cashless system, meaning that everything you purchase on board will be charged to your shipboard account. You will be issued a card at embarkation (looks like a credit card, but not only does it act like a credit card, on most ships it is your room key and also acts as your ID to get on and off the ship). When purchasing a drink, you will give the bar tender your card and the cost of the dirnk + a 15% gratuity will automatically be charged to your account.

Cruisethisfeb,

Congratulations on your first cruise! I predict you will find it addicting.

As for bringing beer aboard - that is really frowned upon by all the cruise lines. Here is the Princess policy regarding personal alcohol: Princess Alcohol Policy
