I forgot small bills for tipping and had to shell out a $6.50 ATM fee.
Arguably, one of the biggest mistakes first-time cruisers make is thinking you won’t spend any money once you’ve book the trip.
In theory, you board the ship and your lodging, food, and gratuities are all paid for.
While you might not spend a lot of money during a cruise, you’ll quickly find places you want and need cash for.
For example, if passengers go on excursions, they should tip their tour operators. It’s also nice to leave an additional tip to your stateroom steward — so I’d recommend bringing cash in the form of small bills.
Since I made the mistake of forgetting cash, I had to pay the ship’s $6.50 ATM charge. Plus, I only got $20 bills, so I had to track down someone who could break the bills for me.
