    I'm on a costa cruise at the moment, i'm wondering if anybody has any advice on getting a discount on my now astronimical bar tab that has to be settled in the morning.

    Thanks,

    Would this count as posting while under the influence?

    Sorry, Joe, only if you happen to find a sugar momma between now and morning who wants to adopt you :D

    Only way to get a "discount" is to jump overboard. Just kidding.

    One thing, make sure you pay with a miles earning credit card. Should help the pain.

    Already paid with a miles earning credit card.

    Joining their club yields a 10 percent discount, but only on future cruises (so be sure to join prior to booking your first cruise).

    They also allow 500 euro a day for free when pulled via a slot machine instead of at the cashier. Then u can walk over to one of the kiosks, swipe your ship I'd card, and swipe a new cc, and 500 euro on the new card....continue with as many cars as wanted.

    Note that this is billed in euro, so if u don't have a FTf free card, you will be hit with this fees from ur cc.

    Pulled out well over 1000 euro a day every day of the cruise, across almost all of my ccs.

    There was no security leaving the cruise at our point of origin (cph) - so no concern with having over 10k euro.

    Be careful. If you're entering or exiting the USA, cash (and other stuff) over US$10,000 must be reported, although it's not forbidden to carry cash across the border. Many other countries have similar rules about the import and/or export of currency.
