Beverage Card (non-promotional but from HAL) questions

Recommended Posts

Hello All!

 

Just some questions about the Beverage Cards we received from a HAL pricing specialist that are not part of a promotional fare.  We will be getting the cards in our stateroom on embarkation day. 

 

Questions:

 

If we don't use the cards during the trip, can we use them on another cruise?

 

If we buy the SBP and don't need the cards, but cannot save them to use on another cruise, can we exchange them for OBC ?  

 

If we were given the cards by a HAL employee and don't use the cards, will the amount be credited back to our onboard account or refunded in any way or is it a use it or lose proposition?

 

Can we use the Beverage Cards on HMC?

 

Thanks for your assistance!

You can not save the Beverage Cards to be used on another cruise.

 

You can not use the cards on HMC.

 

If you don't use the cards -- you may get the money refunded to be used as shipboard credit BUT since they were a gift from HAL I doubt that you will get it credited back to your credit card.

Is any balance that I did not use credited back to me if I bought the cards myself? If so how is it credited back off the bill or to the credit card?   I usually spend it all but it's good info to know.  Thanks

If you buy the cards yourself, then you are credited back whatever is left.  It’s credited to your on board account and if that is a credit balance then to your credit card on file.

If you are talking about the $50 card for $25, they will only credit back if the amount left on the card is more than $25 dollars. It will be credited to your on board account, not back to your credit card. On my last cruise I bought three; used one full card and part of the second. I was credited back $50 for the unused card and $25 for the partial.

Thank you for this information!

 

I think we will try to exchange them on the first day for OBC at guest services since we will have the SBP.  That seems like the best choice as we will be able to pay the gratuities from the account and maybe order drinks at HMC too so none of it will get wasted!
