On board spending money

Recommended Posts

You can spend it on most things but only once you're onboard. For example you can use it to book excursions before you go.

You can pay for drinks, speciality restaurants, spa treatments, items in the shops, tours, room service - can't think of anything you can't use it for except maybe the casino

I don't think you can use it to buy foreign currency.

Nor for medical services in the unlikely event of illness.

This is from the P&O website. The only reason I looked was that on Tuesday night the P&O rep on Planet cruises TV show said you could spend OBC on anything and I knew that was not true.

On board credit

If you have any on board credit this will be used against your on board spend during your holiday, in most of the ships’ outlets.   On board credit cannot be used for the following:

  • Medical charges (including services, prescriptions and supplies)
  • Cash back
  • Purchase of foreign currency
  • International visas
  • Charity donations
  • On-board gaming (including the casino)
  • As full or part payment against a future cruise


All on board credits are non-refundable at any time. If you have purchased, or have received a gift credit then please be advised that the same limits as above apply. All gift credits are non-refundable on board.

You CAN'T use it to pre pay the excursions before you go. You get your Peninsular club discount instead.
