"Know before you go what you want to spend and it’ll make it easier to stay on track. One trick I’ve used before is cash. I take a certain amount of cash to pay for on board and port expenses and when it’s gone, I know I’m done spending (I just keep putting the cash down on my onboard card at Guest Services to cover on board spending)." Not a bad idea! When you're having fun and you've had a few drinks it's easy to hand over a credit card without realizing how much you're spending. Not so with cash. Still, you should exercise extreme caution when carrying more than $100 in cash, especially when flying (keep it in your carry-on) and in port (don't wave it around).
