Casino, Onboard credit, Conversion to cash

Recommended Posts

Sailing Princess next year, and first cruise.  I expect to spend a little casino time.  Several easy question, I suppose.

 

I'll have a few hundred of OBC.  Can I convert those into chips?

 

After a session, can I convert the chips into CASH, or does it go back into OBC?

 

Thanks for the help!

Have seen folks telling how to convert OBC to cash. Does not really work too well. OBC is on your card for ship purchases. You can sign at the tables or at the slot machines. That amount is charged to your credit card. Nothing to do with your OBC. Chips can be cashed in for money. Only the charges show up on your shipboard account. Winnings in the casino are on your Casino account and can be cashed in. Casino is a whole different animal. Completely separate from the cruise line. Nothing will show up on your folio other than your charges. No credits from the Casino.

Don't know how it works on Princess, but on NCL there are two kinds of OBC.

 

Non-refundable OBC cannot be used for play in the casino.

 

Refundable OBC can be used for play in the casino.

I hope this is the case. I have been getting mixed answers. I sail in a couple of days and this is my first NCL cruise. I maintain a cash account for my OBC, no credit card. I have never had a problem on Carnival or Celebrity with pulling money from my onboard account to use in the casino. I have seen others state that I cannot if my onboard account is not credit card funded. Makes no sense to me.
