Currency/Shipboard Accounts

With the ease of your stateroom card key, a personalized shipboard account allows you to charge everything from Crystal Adventures® ashore to incidentals on board.

At the beginning of the cruise, to expedite the settlement of your account, an imprint of your credit card and your signature will be taken at the Reception Desk if you have not already registered your payment information online. Your shipboard account and charges may be settled with cash, traveler’s checks, MasterCard®, VISA®, American Express®, Diners Club®, Discover Card® or JCB Card. Personal checks (drawn on U.S. banks only) of up to $1,000 USD within a 24-hour period for a total of $4,000 USD per cruise may be cashed on board. Third-party checks of any kind are not accepted. Guests may cash traveler’s checks up to $1,000 USD within a 24-hour period. The maximum amount of traveler’s checks that can be cashed by one person is $1,000 USD times the number of days in the cruise. Credit card payments and personal checks are subject to credit clearance. In some ports, a local currency exchange service may be available on board.

Please note: If not used before the end of your cruise, some shipboard credits may not be redeemable for cash and will be forfeited.
