Probably a stupid question but my offspring will probably spend a little time in the casino & I am willing to pay for the vacation but not that.  Is there a method to pay without using your seapass card?

Sure.  The casino will always accept cash.  They will want to present their seapass cards so that their play can be tracked, but there will be no charge against the seapass card unless they request a cash advance.

You can either pay in cash as you go, or go to any table or slot machine and ask for a charge to your room.  If you prefer you can also get a cash advance or your credit card at the cashier's window.   Since my credit card is attached to my SeaPass it costs less just to charge it to your room.

The good news is if you use your Sea Pass card every time you gamble you get rewards.  Only paid for one cruise in our last 7 cruises.  Casino Royale takes care of the folks that gamble.

They make it very easy to get cash.  GOOD LUCK

Just a reminder to those that don't know: You don't need to PAY for gambling with your Sea Pass to get reward points. You can use cash and "Sign In" to a machine with your Sea Pass to gain reward points.

No.  You will be automatically enrolled in the program by inserting your sea pass card into a machine or presenting it to the dealer/pit boss.  Back before the current Club Royale program, you had to be invited to join !!  Much easier these days.

But you don't get much for it. I was in the casino every day and lost hundreds of dollars and only ended up with 156 points.

All comes down to luck.

On Indy end of January I managed to rack up 400 points and walk away up $20.

My sister on the other hand wasn't as lucky in trying to reach her point goal.

Flip side, I've been in the same situation of hundreds down with only a few points shy of the 100 point mark.

Do they charge you a service fee if you charge it to your room?

Could you just "deposit" using a slot machine, cash out, then take it to the table to avoid the 5%?

 

Yes. Many times I've sat a machine and did a room charge for funds then not have a good feeling about that machine, cash out, then call it a night. Being smart, I'd usually cash out my ticket so I didn't forget about. Then suddenly the tables would be calling my name and next thing I know...

Not at all.  As soon as they see your Sea Pass card they know exactly your money in/money out.  We get free drinks in the casino on all cruises and 5 or 6 free cruise offers every month.

My wife suggested we use our cards 4 years ago, never did it before.  Kills me that she was so right.

You do need to obviously gamble a decent amount, not trying to tell anybody to throw a 20 on a machine and you get everything.  We are, I believe what they call Prime members in Casino Royale.

Good luck

Is it true if you have a lot of on board credit towards the end of the cruise, you can cash them in for US dollars at the casino cashier cage? Thaanks.😎

Well….a lot depends on what kind of OBC you have.  Refundable OBC can definitely be cashed out and I think (although I’ve never done it) you can actually cash out refundable OBC at Guest Services. 

I don’t think the casino cashier will cash out OBC anymore (I think they used to) but I never have anything to cash out so I am not sure.  The one method that I think will work is to do a charge to your set sail pass on a slot machine and then cash that out at the cashier cage.  I think there may be a limit to how much money you can cash out in this manner, but again, not sure.

Sorry I’m not much help here.  There’s no such thing as unused OBC in my world !  Lol. 😜
