Default Casino-Tokens or Quarters-Sun Princess

Does anyone know if the Casino on the Sun Princess uses quarters for the slot machines. I am from Canada and have been saving US quaters for the casino. Is it all for nothing????thanks

Every Princess ship we've been on uses "Princess" tokens. That includes Sun, Dawn, new Star, & old Star. I'm sure they will gladly exchange your quarters for tokens. I have kept a few as they make nice souveniers and great golf markers on the greens. Haven't seen anyone else with one yet! Enjoy the Sun, I know we had a great time.

On my three previous Princess cruises, the slots accepted quarters or had a slot where you could insert bills and play off credit. I've never used a token on Princess, but that does not mean they aren't available.

Only tokens (or bills) can be used in the slot machines - no quarters.

Your the only one I've seen that has experienced being able to use quarters. I've been on many Princess cruises and all I recall, as the others mentioned, was bills and tokens.

Well, let's put it this way. I would put a bill in the machine, it would pay out in quarters when I won.....when I ran out of credits, I would put the quarters in the machine and was still able to play and win!

Are you sure they weren't tokens? Did you put them all back in the machine or did you actually use them for cash on shore? The machines I've used took bills and coughed out tokens that I had to exchange for the real thing at the cashier.

BTW, I wish the cruise lines and Nevada casinos would take a lesson from the Indian casinos where they print a ticket with it's value, when one cashes out, that can be put into any other machine or cashed in. Much easier than lugging a container of coins around. I only know of one little casino in Las Vegas that does this too but the majority don't.

Just asked DH about this, he did play and win a number of times on our cruise (Sun Princess 16 June 2003). You can only use US notes and princess tokens and that is all, it will only spit out tokens if you cash out. You are not able to use quarters.

Hope this helps,
Cheers
