Sure i can get upset about it. its not your money so you can easily say well i would have done...fact is they made the mistake, not me. i talked to them on monday and they said it would be done within a week.
Well forgive me for stating the obvious, but yes you SHOULD concern yourself for a few minutes at the end of each day to check your on board account...afterall, it is YOUR money that a cruise line is playing fast & loose with.
A few minutes checking your receipts each night against a print-out from guest services saves you from countless stress once back home when you discover a cock-up in their accounting.
Checking the account on a regular basis is cruise 101 really.
