    What can I expect to spend while on-board?

    by metalfan9366 » Wed Dec 23, 2015 8:17 pm

    First time cruiser here. I am trying to budget for on-board expenses and really don't know what I should plan on. I am not a big drinker so alcohol will be minimal. If anyone is willing to give me some idea on what they had for total on-board expenses on past cruises, I would be great-full. Thanks much and see you in February.

    Usually around $400-$600 for the wife and I.

    Refer to this thread created after the first cruise - will give you a bit of an idea of what to expect:

    I plan on spending $0. I might pick up a shirt this time though since I actually like the line up a lot.

    Nope. They have a reasonably good variety of beers. Red Stripe, Stella Artois, Budweiser, I think Corona, and I'm missing some for sure. It's just that I always go for the big one and tend to ignore the rest while onbroad :D

    They actually have a rather large selection of beer.
    You can expect to run into someone selling beer about anywhere on the boat. They usually only have several different brands per booth but if you ask nicely (*cough* tip *cough*) they'll get you what ever you want.
    You can head to the Irish Pub on deck 3 if you want to check all the beers they offer and what you have to pay for each.
    To answer the OPs question, we payed 800$ for 3 persons this year, about 200$ on merch and the rest on beer. It's a lot cheaper if you drink Budweiser or something, but honestly I can't stand that kind of "beer" :belly:

    Yeah I know that, I was joking, because he choose to only drink Kangaroo piss when there's plenty of good beers on broad. I will definitely be going to the Irish pub, have already made a note of that.

    The pub rules. If you like Chimay, head to the pub first as it sold out quickly last year. I hope they bring more this time.

    Speaking of which (and sorry if this is a bit off topic), but does anyone know if there is a way to get another of last year's shirt? I bought one but it got lost a couple weeks after the cruise :(

    As far as expenses, I spent about $100 a day on beer (bought quite a few for other people), about $200 on merch, and about $100 in Jamaica.

    Not in every size though - usually there are only girly shirts and/or unusual sizes left from earlier years.

    I know this isn't onboard, but I remember hearing something about there being special metal head Jamaican shirts for sale during Ocho Rios. How much were they and where were good places to find them. I'm hoping the same will happen next year in Falmouth too.

    They were sold by the Ocho Rios Margaritaville. I think I remember that they were a little over $31.

    If you're expecting "minimal" expenses for alcohol (like me), then your onboard expenses will consist primarily of:

    • merch purchases....this can be anywhere from $0 to $whoknows. I spent $220 or so on merch last year. Each band is allowed two items for sale (so, 120 items) and then there's the 70K merch.
    • non-alcoholic drink purchases. If you drink soda instead, I'd suggest getting the non-alcoholic drink package from Royal Caribbean, either in advance or onboard. It's around $10/day and includes sodas and juice.
    • "bonus" tipping. Not necessary since it's theoretically included but I usually tip my room-steward $20 if they do a good job, and if I get good soft-drink service from a bartender I'll tip 'em something, too.
    • maybe some extra money for specialty dining, etc. Last year I happily dropped a few dollars for the cover charge at Johnny Rockets because they were open 'til 5am and the 24-hr pizza wasn't very good.

    I spent about $230 last year. Outta that, I got one girlie cruise tee, a few trips to Johnny Rockets, and after that, alcoholic beverages of various sorts, mainly beer. I also had no idea that tips were included, which was a little dumb. I would still tip for a nice mixed drink at the bar, but not for beer at one of the carts.

    Some people's spend amounts from previous cruises look scary, but those are people who buy lots of merch. People want the special edition t-shirts or something for an artist to sign. Then there's couples who are giving us their total bill amount.

    I think for most people, budgeting $300 per person is more than safe.

    2014 was my first time and I spent about the same amount. If I remember correctly, it is recommended that your room card is linked to your actual credit card but if you don't want to (I didn't) they give you a $300 limit to spend on your card and you pay it off in cash at guest services. I hope they still allow that; I didn't make it last year so this will be my first time seeing the new ship!

    Thank you to all for your input on what I can expect to spend while on the boat. It is much appreciated. Now I have one more slightly related question;
    Do I have to use my normal credit card or can I use a Pre-paid credit card that I can get from Wal-Mart?
    A friend of the family does extensive traveling and in the last year she has been hacked 4 times.
    I am slightly paranoid about anything tied back to my main account.
    Thanks for any input you might have.

    For your shipboard account, you should be safe to use a credit, debit or pre-paid card without too much worry. You'll be able to set up that billing via Royal Caribbean's website before the cruise and their website is (presumably) secure...or at least as secure as anyone else's commercial site nowadays.

    HOWEVER, the same is not necessarily true of businesses onshore in Jamaica and I wouldn't trust them. Last year I was careful to use only US cash onshore at Margaritaville. Note that your credit-card issuer might charge a foreign transaction fee for every purchase you make onshore in, err, "Foulmouth."

    How does one link their debit card to their shipboard account? I couldn't check out because my card was declined, despite having plenty of funds available. Ended up having to use my NZ credit card which I try to avoid because of the high fees. Frustrating.

    You can link it before broading when they (Royal Caribbean) sends us the check-in information for the cruise (like you would check in for an airplane). There you can add the CC you want all your stuff to go on.

    some of my friends had scams in your credit cards, but it seems it was in the hotel before boarding the cruise. For this year, I'll just cash

    What do you pay for on board? I know things like booze, fizzy drinks, some fast food etc. But what about the other things such as climbing wall, the surf board thing etc. Is there a charge for those or does it come included? Thats if i can find time for anything other than drinking and bands anyway!

    You pay for booze, sodas, cocktails and food in the specialty restaurants. Some of the restaurantes you pay just a fee (Johnny Rockets/Haagen Dasz) and not the actual food you order.

    Last year I saw no one using anything but the wave thing. It is paid.

    The "wave thing" (Flowrider) is free, but you can pay to get private lessons on it.

    I believe they cost about $US60 and go for one hour.

    If Royal Caribbean (or anyone else) placed a temporary hold on the debit card, like a lot of hotels do, then that could have caused the issue. This is one of the few reasons why it's good to have one "true" credit card. (And let's face it, a cruise ship is basically one giant floating hotel. The Captain is the commanding officer, but the Hotel Director is the second-in-command.)
