You're better off to register a CC but you can deposit money and have the account they set up with the $$$ tied to your key card/account. The staff at the bars/lounges, pool deck, duty free shops etc. will want your key card for any purchases.

CC=credit card.

You can't pay cash for anything on the ship except extra tips; you can secure your onboard account with cash. You do this at the Purser's desk, or Passenger Services desk, as some lines call it.

...CC....that would be a credit card.

Yes, if you don't use a credit card to secure your shipboard account then you'll need to hand over some cash when you check-in.

To me, a credit card is the way to go...cash seems to disappear so fast and you can't use it on board for anything anyway....Most stores on land, will except most major cards...but a few bucks does come in handy though...but when your wife is buying black pearls, diamonds, emeralds and other expensive things...a credit card is the only way to go....Happy Cruising...
