We are sailing on the Grandeur Sept. 24th. I understand that the ship is a cashless society & everything is charged to your S & S card. But, how does this work in the casino? Do you use "real" money in the slot machines, etc.? If so, is it US dollars?
Thanks for any help (as always).
Yes, you use "real money" in the casino. You can use your sail & sign card at the cashier to get money, there might be a limit, I am not sure. Yes, It is American $$$. We have found the first nights to have looser slots, and towards the end of the cruise, they tend to become tighter. We don't gamble too much, so hope this helps you out.
Have a great cruise, and enjoy the casino! Good Luck!

You may have seen a Players Club Card (used for goodies and comps. The more you play the more you get) plugged into the slot machine. I may be wrong but I don't think the slots take S&S cards.
Deb: The slots do take cash. Bills and coins. Some of the slots on certain ships do take and return "tokens" and not actual quarters. Almost all of the $1 slots use $1 tokens. All of these are available at the cashiers cage. You can get cash on your S&S card at the cashiers cage.
Before the days when gratuities could be put on your S&S I always got tip money from the casino.
