I was wondering if on board credit could be used in the casino on board the ship? Like if you put money down on a future cruise and get OBC, where exactly can it be used? Thanks!
I was wondering if on board credit could be used in the casino on board the ship? Like if you put money down on a future cruise and get OBC, where exactly can it be used? Thanks!If you put money down on a future cruise your OBC will be applied towards that deposit certificate; no need to look for a way to spend it.
There are 2 types of OBC. Refundable, which is usually the type that either you have bought prior to the cruise, or possibly your TA has given you. You can use that OBC for anything, and the unused portion will be given back to you at the end of the cruise. If you do want to use it for the Casino though, there is a 3% fee(like any other transaction, unless you're a high roller with players club) . Non refundable OBC, which is what most people have, cannot be used for anything that is not purchased. So, cash for the casino, or DSC is excluded. For non refundable, if you don't use it on your cruise, you lose the remaining portion.I know this thread is a year old....
I too am very curious about this; thanks for posting.
I'm wondering if you can use your OBC for: gratuities, specialty restaurants (a la carte) and the casino??
Yes, we do it all the time all you have to do is go to the casino cashere and ask for X number of $$. There is a 3% service charge. All OB charges will be put on your account and any credits will be deducted at the end of the cruise.
When using OBC at the casino do you go to the casino cashier and ask for the cash or do you put your card right in the machine and request a certain amount? This is the way it was on Carnival Breeze (no fee either but I understand NCL charges 3%). The amount you wanted was just loaded to the machine. It was nice! Also, if I purchase OBC certificates from the NCL website, those are refundable, correct??
