Is there any credit card pre-authorization upon check-in? If there is, how much is the authorization hold?
It is not mandatory to provide credit card / debit card or cash deposit to establish onboard account. However, pre-authorization will facilitate faster check-out and final settlement of your account on the last day of your cruise.
Guests may log in to Quick Pay Self Check Out system to apply preauthorization by scanning the Quick Pay QR codes onboard. For World Dream, guests also have the option to sign up for the pre-authorization at the moment they get their Stateroom Access Card at the embarkation hall.
For security and fraud protection, credit cards issued by certain organizations may be declined by the system.
For optimal onboard experience of guests, there is also minimum pre-authorization amount as follow (may adjusted at the discretion of ship management on case by case basis):
- 5 or 6 night sailings: HKD 5,000 / SGD 250
- 3 or 4 night sailings: HKD 2,000 / SGD 200
- 2 night sailings: HKD 2,000 / SGD 150
- 1 night sailings: HKD 1,000 / SGD 150
