I'm just wondering if I wanted to register for a ship excursion, do you have to pay up front or do they hold your credit card information until you get on the ship? I know if you booked an excursion off the ship they don't charge you until you actually arrive. Just trying to make sure when I put charges on the card.

When booking with the ship you pay for the excursions up front.

The way Princess does it, you are not charged until you are on board the ship. Not sure about RCI, but it is probably the same. SonnyV will probably be by later today and can let you know for sure. Best wishes!

DSR and Penny are right. When you book aboard the ship your seapass card is used to pay for the excursion. However, you have the option of going on line to book excursions before you leave for your cruise. If you do this your credit card is used.

Hey Penny, did you notice we're sailing on the same months? Nice way to end the year!

Booking in advance, on-line, has the advantage of allowing you to use a credit card you might not be taking on the cruise!

RCI's current policy is that if you book and pay for excursions in advance over the internet, they're refundable if you're outside of 24 hours prior to the excursions' departure. If you know what you want to book, booking in advance gives you a better chance of not being closed out on that excursions. Of course, the down side is that they take your money immediately when you book.

Yeah booking in advance is ideal in case the excursion you want sells out. All our excursions are paid for all ready for my Freedom cruise leaving on the 24th...I just hope I dont end up like Steve Irwin when we go to StingRay City!!!
