I use to over spend and found I wouldn't do that if I paid in cash, so I only have a small cc now.
spencercoop thanks I think I will take them off, now I'm going to research what to do off the ship with kids.
You can do a sail and sign account with cash and include the tips in the money you put down. The TV screen in the cabin will show all your charges, you want to watch it carefully sometimes mistakes are made they can be corrected on board, but if you discover it after the cruise the fix will be harder.
