Check Cashing / Traveler’s Checks

Check Cashing

Guests may use their personal checks on board to acquire a cash advance at the Casino Cashier's Window. Global Cash Access (GCA) provides this service by debiting the guest's checking account, using the account number on the check. The guest must have available monies in the checking account that the check is drawn on.

Important Note: Just like debit cards, the monies are immediately debited from the guest's checking account.

  • For this service, GCA charges 5.5% of the value of the cash advance requested or a flat fee of $5.50 if the amount requested is $100 or less.
  • Since the guest's checking account is debited (same as if using a debit card), the personal check is returned to the guest.
  • Limits are determined by the available monies currently available in the guest's checking account.
  • We do not accept Cashier's Checks, Bank Checks nor Money Orders.

Traveler’s Checks

U.S. Traveler's Checks can be cashed on board at the Guest Services Desk. Since Traveler's Checks are considered as cash, there is no fee for this check cashing service – there is a $1000.00 limit per guest, per day.

Cruises in Australia
We will only accept U.S. Traveler's Checks on cruises sailing from Australia.
