We have travelled on many of the RCL cruise ships They take an imprint of your cards either Debit or Credti when you join the hsip and all your expenses on board are charged to your Stateroom card and you receive the bill on the last night, you can check it regulary at reception during your holiday. and they debit your card at the end of the cruise. You can also pay cash off during the holdiay if you wish, with the dollar rate at the moment it may be worth buying some dollars know and paying off during the holdiay, no bill when you get home. Looking forward to going on the above ship in August after our trip on the Jewel in June .

Great ship. there is a cash machine on board to take money out (provding it is a mastreo card) but you will not be able to pay with your debit card. Muy advsied is have a credit card or take cash/traveller cheques. However exchage rates on board are not great. maybe call the cruise company to double check that they have not changed the rule.

You will be given an on-board account credit card that is guaranteed by your chosen credit card... you can settle it whenever you want with cash or leave the final balance to be charged to your account.

U may by able to pay at end of cruise with your debit card (taking cash straight from account,like u do home) or just give credit card details which they will then bill you after your cruise which is just as easy, as on last day always queues at guest relations with people paying bills remember this is a cashless boat.Best use credit card less hassle as they do ask for card details b4 getting on boat unless you put a cash deposit down. There r safety boxes in room (free) prices very reasonable on ship £2.50p a pint 200 fags £12 enjoy amazing ship from a first time cruiser on 28/04/07.

I sailed on Legend on the Seas last year and paid my on board account with my Visa debit card. Might be best to check with RCI that all debit cards are acceptable.

Hi, we are going on this cruise and have booked in on line to save time at the dock. We have given our credit card to pay for on board expenses. As the $ is quite good at the moment it might be better to make sure they bill you in dollars to your credit card and then the bank will use their exchange rate which I assume would be better than on board. We have booked our trips online as well and paid in sterling but the $ equivalent on their website seems to be $1.92 to the £ which isn't bad at the moment. Whether this will be the rate for settling up is another thing. You will have to make an educated guess on what you end up with. I still haven't made my mind up yet so I will see what the rate is onboard and make my decision. Hope this helps.
