Default BUYING CASINO CHIPS ON CREDIT CARD

I will be on the Golden Princess this summer. I was wondering if you can buy casino chips with a credit card, and then turn them in later for cash

You can use your ship's charge card to buy chips. They will tack on 3% for that service.

What cruise are you going on?

zelniker,

You can, but Irish Shark is right -- Princess treats the purchase of casino chips on a shipboard account as a cash advance and adds a surcharge of three percent (3%).

If you want to get cash, the Purser's Desk can cash personal checks up to a reasonable limit ($100 per day IIRC), then you can use the cash to buy casino chips. There's no charge for that service.

Norm.
