Just curious how much cash everyone takes along- I know they say to take a lot of small bills especially for shopping and tipping. Just curious. My boyfriend says $1,000 and I think $500 would be more than enough b/c of using the seapass card. Tnaks again!

Don't worry about bringing too much cash onboard.
You will most likely pay for your SeaPass using a credit card, and if you want to shop, or anything, on board, you find it just waay easier to use your credit card directly =D
If you need cash onboard for tip or anything, there's allways an ATM-machine avaible!

candi, you didn't say how many nights the cruise is. I usually figure $100 a day for two of us--and I usually take money home; but I'd rather have it and not need it than the other way around.

Ginababe, you didn't say where you are going; I'm guessing the "ssouthern" in your ticker means "Caribbean", in which case U.S. dollars are good everywhere.

Actually, I think you can avoid ATM fees by getting cash from the casino. They give cash advances and charge it to your onboard account...and there are no fees.
Someone correct me if I am wrong.

"How much dough?" Bring as much as you knead. Sorry, couldn't resist. If you are coming from america, bring dollars. If you are coming from europe, bring euros. Currency can be exchanged as necessary from one country's to another. Like Rick previously stated, (and this is solely dependent on your drinking habits)$100 a day for a couple should be in the ballpark. Bring more cash than you think that you are going to need. You can always lock it in your safe in the stateroom. It's always better to have a little extra than having two days left and no moola.

Yes indeed, drlivingston certainly knows his way around commodes. I would expect nothing less from him! However we still await word on his prowess with urinals.

Just hope he doesn't get a little behind in his business by taking all these cruises.
