We have recently implemented a new Onboard Payment System on our fleet.
After embarking and collecting the Cruise Card from your cabin, You should activate it for onboard purchases by self-registering your credit/debit/prepaid card at one of the Cruise Card Activation Points
You can do this independently, at any time from embarkation until 11:00pm the following day, at any of the Cruise Card Activation Points located around the ship. These new devices let you register your card simply, rapidly and securely. Please note that you will be asked to enter the PIN number.
Alternatively, you can leave cash deposit at the Reception – Guest Service.
You can settle your final bill in any of the following three ways:
- by credit card
The following credit cards are accepted: Visa, , MasterCard, Diners, JCB, Discover and American Express.
If you choose to pay by credit card, your account will be closed automatically at the end of the cruise, so there is no need to go to the Reception – Guest Service.
- by debit or prepaid card
you should make sure that your debit/prepaid card is enabled for use abroad.
The following debit cards are accepted: Maestro, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard debit
Any amount debited to your card and not spent during your cruise will be reimbursed in cash at the Reception - Guest Service on the final morning before disembarkation.
- in cash
Any amount deposited in cash and not spent during the cruise will be reimbursed in cash at the Reception - Guest Service on the final morning before disembarkation.
Please note that personal cheques are not accepted.
For cruises in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Antilles, Dubai, the Emirates and Oman, as well as MSC Grand Voyages departing from Europe, the onboard currency is the Euro (€).
For cruises in the Caribbean, South America and South Africa, as well as MSC Grand Voyages going to Europe and to Australia, the onboard currency is the US Dollar ($).
