I am taking my daughters on a cruise in February. We will have a shipboard credit of $100 each due to changes because of the hurricane. What happens if we don't use all of the credit? Just curious, I'm sure we'll have no problem using $300!

an onboard credit will not be paid out to you by any cruise line and must be considered lost. So, make sure to spend all of it.
Best regards,

You goto the casino, get chips for whatever money you want to get cash for, from your sign n sail card... walk around for a while, then cash them out for real money. I know there is a 3% fee, but i fyou get $97 cash instead of $100 credit, it is better than loosing it, IMO.

The ship board credit is applied to youur ship & sail card, as well as the tipping, excursions, etc. So with the average week long crusie and the $70 tipping that will leave you $30. If you do any excursions I suspect they will be close to, if not more, than $30. So actually you will not have a whole lot left with your $100 on board credit!

Actually the cruise is only for four nights and the tips are already taken care of. I am going with a group, tips have been pre-paid. So the credit will cover drinks, photos, etc. Our only stop is in Cozumel so I'm booking an excursion on my own, not through the ship.

Thanks for the idea with the casino. We also have shipboard credit due to Hurricane Katrina cancellations and we'll try out that strategy.
