An Onboard Expense Account, also known as your Seapass® onboard account, is the cashless system used for all onboard purchases and services.
The account may be set-up with either a credt card or as a cash account. You may establish a master account and add guests from your stateroom or another stateroom as authorized purchasers on your account.
For each purchase made onboard the ship you will receive a receipt at the point of sale. A final statement will be delivered to your stateroom on the final morning of your cruise vacation for your review.
Guests that set up a Seapass account with a credit card should verify the statement. If all purchases are correct, they will automatically be billed to the credit card.
Guests on a cash account will need to settle their statement onboard prior to disembarking. The ship will provide you with specific details.
Royal Caribbean generally bills onboard charges in US Dollars. We offer a service for our guests to bill their onboard charges in their local currency (rather than in US Dollars). This service uses highly visible, market-driven exchange rates so that there is full transparency and you know exactly what your charges will be in your home currency at the end of the voyage. The exchange rate used, as well as your total charges, will be printed on your final SeaPass® onboard statement before you leave the vessel.
By electing to bill your card in your home currency, you will not be charged any additional fees by your credit card issuer. Royal Caribbean will apply a one-time international currency exchange fee of 3% which will be included in the final SeaPass® onboard statement amount.
No. Royal Caribbean currently supports the following currencies:
Australian Dollar (AUD
Canadian Dollar (CAD)
Swiss Franc (CHF)
Danish Krone (DKK)
British Pounds (GBP)
The Euro (EUR)
Hong Kong Dollar (HKD)
Japanese Yen (JPY)
Mexican Peso (MXN)
Norwegian Krone (NOK)
Swedish Krona (SEK)
The foreign exchange rate is generally set on the last business day prior to debarkation.
The rates are set on Friday for a Sunday or Monday debarkation because the financial markets on foreign currency are closed on the weekend and do not update the conversion rates before Royal Caribbean prints the final total of onboard charges.
Most banks will also charge an international currency exchange fee. There are a limited number of credit cards offered by banks that have low fees, and in a few instances the foreign transaction fees are waived (0%).
Royal Caribbean’s fee is very similar to most credit cards, but it is not guaranteed to be lower.
Yes, a currency conversion surcharge* will be included in all onboard foreign currency exchange rates for sailings beginning on or after October 1st, 2013.
*Surcharge subject to change.
