Do you prefer to link your on board account to your credit card or put down cash? Last time we did credit card but that was 10yrs ago & this time we are going just slightly longer so the hold would be $200.00. I really don't want that large of a hold on my credit card for various reasons (we get home less than a week before Cmas & might need it; we don't have a high limit on our card). If I give them cash is there still a hold? Can I add more if I need it? We aren't big spenders but will basically want some money for souvenirs & any treats our kids may want.


Thanks in advance experienced cruisers for your advice!
