Casino -can dollars be used or must you have ship's tokens?

Is there a charge for buying tokens if using a credit card.

Can tokens be charged to the room?

I assume you're talking about slot machines. Dollars can be used in all slot machines. However, they pay out tokens, which you can cash for dollars at the cashier's cage.

If you use your credit card to get cash in the casino, there is a 3% charge added. You can, however, send yourself a gift of casino credits. Just call Princess, give your credit card number, and order any amount of money you want. You then can get the money in the casino. It just gets charged to your credit card as any other purchase -- no 3% surcharge.

We were on the Crown this past September. If I recall correctly, I didn't even need to use tokens to play the slots. I inserted my cruise card into the slot machine "slot", downloaded the amount I wanted to play with into the slot machine as "credits", and then played my credits.
