How Often Do You Check Your Statement On Board a Cruise?

We make a habit of checking our bill every few days.  It is a lot easier to fix a mistake right away than wait until the last night and have to stand on a long line.  We have caught several errors over the years.  Once we were charged for someone else's laundry.  Another time, the price of a drink was incorrect.  Still another time we were charged a cover charge for a specialty restaurant when we had handed in a voucher for the waiver of the fee.  The last mistake took several days to correct.  I appreciate it when guests can check their bill on your stateroom TV.  We could not do that on the ms Amsterdam so we had to keep getting printouts regularly.  It was a very long cruise.

Depending on the ports of call and the amount of excursions we do, we check every other day. We tend to take longer cruises and we have as yet had no trouble. When we took the NCL Dawn to Bermuda as a group we checked more often as we were all buying rounds in the evening and everyone had to pay up to whoever was hosting that night. It saved a lot of grief when the final bar bill showed up-----Ka- ching....

Every two days. I completely agree, easier to fix the mistakes if caught early. All one has to do is look at the line at the desk the night before the end of the cruise or on the last morning.
