Prepurchasing Onboard Casino Credits

Recommended Posts

Quite a few years ago I was able to do this. I looked on the "Cruise Personalizer" on their website and don't see that as an option.  Has that option gone away? Thanks in advance!

No, it's still there. I think it's under onboard reservations/credits in the Manage my Booking section. We purchased casino credit for our October 2019 CB repo. When we arrived in our cabin we had the amount I pre-ordered lying on the bed in $100 increments with a note explaining how to redeem them in the casino.

New time limit.  I posted this just prior to our recent cruise.  Casino credit orders must be done at least 14 days prior to departure.

Thank you both - I called in and got them  - just couldn't get them online for some reason.

I would simply purchase "regular" OBC. Any credit in your account can be used in the casino. I was "accidentally" given a small amount ($25) of casino credit on our last cruise when a Princess rep credited some of our OBC that way. I was surprised when I went to the casino to ask about it as they simply gave me $25 in cash rather than having it available as OBC.

I haven’t had this option either for quite a few years either.  It’s not available under Manage My Bookings like previous.  We just buy OBC and use that in the casino.

Used to get these but easier to take cash since each certificate is a max of $100 and taking a stack down to the Cage was a pain plus they missed one form. Cashier's Cage just looked it up and gave us the cash. 

 

Checked upcoming 4 cruises and it appears in all 4 in the Onboard Services section of the Personalizer.  Also now shows a maximum limit of $1000 per person per cruise.  The 2021 cruises can't be purchased yet online.  Shore excursions and things like flowers can be, though.
