All of Royal Caribbean International ships operate on a "cashless" system, meaning guests' boarding card, (also known as guests' SeaPass card), will be used as a charge card to make all onboard purchases. The card can be activated at check-in with a Visa, Master Card, or American Express credit card. Accounts can also be settled by cash or travelers checks. Personal checks cannot be used to settle an onboard account at the end of the cruise. Personal checks are not accepted for purchases aboard the ship. Guests who have an account with a U.S. bank may cash one personal check at the Purser’s/Guest Relations Desk for up to US$200 per cruise vacation (for guests who present an American Express card, US$250).
Our SeaPass onboard account system places the final charge to guests' credit or debit card in the same currency that the reservation was made, unless otherwise specified. Additionally, some banks utilize what is termed Dynamic Currency Conversion in order to convert foreign purchases into your card’s issued currency. For more information regarding Dynamic Currency Conversion and if guests' credit or debit card uses this service, please contact guests' bank. Royal Caribbean does not process refunds for Dynamic Currency Conversion fees.
For guests' convenience, the Purser’s/Guest Relations Desk can cash travelers’ checks and provide foreign currency exchange. U.S. dollars and travelers’ checks are accepted in most ports. Guests cannot exchange more than USD $1000 in travelers checks and foreign currency per day. Guests can only exchange foreign currency and travelers checks for chips and tokens in the Casino.
