You cannot use cash on any Major Line cruise ship. Your credit card details are submitted prior to boarding & all onboard charges are made to it. If you've not got a credit card, I suggest you get one as a Debit card is not accepted.
I have a pre paid master card i don t have a credit card will i be able to use that or should i just use the seapass and pay at the end in us dollars.
With RCI you cannot buy anything onboard with cash but eveyone will be given a seapass card which if you want anything it will be charged to your card. To set up your seapass card you can register a credit card and at the end of your cruise you will recieve a bill or you can go to customer service deck onboard on the first day of your cruise and pay cash, its like a pre pay credit card. everytime i go on holiday i always pay by cash as i like to stay in control of how much i spend plus in your stateroom you can have a look on the tv to how much money you have left and went you run out of money just top your card back up .
Everything will be charged to your onboard account(just like a hotel). At the end of the cruise you settle by credit card (not debit card) or US$ cash.
If you want to pay cash you will have to pay first to use your seaapass card. it like your pre paid credit card and if you want to pay buy you mastercard all you have to do is register your card details and at the end of your cruise you will recieve a bill .
Most cruise lines will take cash (you pay the Purser an amount of money when you check-in), credit and debit cards. Travellers cheques are also frequently used.
