How do you carry SeaPass card

Recommended Posts

I use the dreaded lanyard, although I avoid wearing it around my neck because it feels like a sloth trying to mildly strangle me all day long. I'll usually loop it through a belt loop, if I have one.  Best case scenario is using a Wow band, but so few ships have them.

Last cruise wow band but if that's not an option ... just put it in my pocket (even bathing suit) or backpack that we are bring to pool anyway (sunscreen, book, etc).

At one point I had 3 wow bands on when I went to get a round for everyone. LOL

Lanyard for us, and if they have them then the WOW band.  Both are a matter of opinion and they both have their advantages and disadvantages, if we are onboard a ship with both then we prefer the WOW band for the most part but there are quite a few times that we will use the lanyard.

Pocket. . . And I've lost one on every cruise I've been on, even DCL with their free lanyards. I'm good!

We pick up at least 2 sea pass cards around the ship every cruise and drop them off at Guest Services.

We have even found multiple cards (not Royal cards) on different sidewalks in Alaska - gave one to a crew member we just happened to run into from the ship that matched the first lost/found card and actually walked up to other ship and handed the 2nd card to security before making our way back to our own ship.

I always wonder how freaked out people must feel when they realize they have lost their cards - especially in a port.

One more thing.

In my wallet, my wife puts hers in whatever bag she's carrying at the time.

If we're by the pool, I put my wallet in the backpack we bring with us.

Like PatsfanBrian.  Have A "system."  We have magnet hooks by the door.  When we enter our stateroom,  we hang it.  As we leave, we pick it up.

I use the lanyard on the ship except for the pool area, where I have a phone-sized waterproof sleeve.  That is also my choice for excursions.

Some ships have RFID, so you can tap your card instead of taking it out of the sleeve.  That saves wear and tear on the sleeves, which tend to tear.  I wear the lanyard around the neck sometimes and in my pocket on other occasions.  How you carry your card will depend upon how you use it.  I find I really don't need it much on the ship -- I am not buying drinks or gifts all the time.

Even if you carry your SeaPass in a pocket, consider a waterproof sleeve if you intend to have a beach or snorkel day.  Not all places have secure lockers....

The ships with the RFID are also the ships with the WOW bands.  

I prefer using the card to the bands, though.  I just use a lanyard that has a detachable sleeve for the RFID ships and had that over.
