To me, the idea of using gift cards for expenses etc, would be a definite No-no. I cannot really understand the idea behind it, but then again I am English and have been brought up with paying with cash !!
Thank you for posting such a thorough review.
Interesting hearing about your experience with gift cards. We considered using them because of a problem we had with credit card fraud. Also, a friend gave me one for my last birthday and I figured a cruise is one place that i'll be sure to use it on something fun. I'll have to rethink that plan because who needs a hassle like the one you experienced.
I enjoyed reading your detailed review. I, too, am a big fan of The Oasis and her sister ship. How unfortunate that you experienced so many problems with accounting. I have never used gift cards on a cruise.
