I am taking a significant amount of cash to use in the casino on my upcoming cruise. In the old days I would just take a travelers check and cash it with the purser. The past few years I have cruised from my home state and since I was driving to the port I wasn't that concerned about carrying a large amount of cash. But on this cruise I am driving to the airport and flying into New Orleans where I will be staying for a couple of days before the cruise. I have asked CAS if there was any other way that doesn't involve fees (credit or debit card) to get cash once on the ship and their answer was no. I'm already gambling, I really don't want to waste an extra 3%. Anybody have any suggestions or work arounds for this issue? At this point I just figure a money belt is my best option. Thanks for your help.
