    How do I get shipboard credit ?

    Ahoy there, Maryann! We're delighted you decided to cruise in to visit with us.

    You're not far at all from your Disney Cruise Line vacation, and it's so exciting! The Disney Cruise Line ships during the holiday season are just pure magic, and there's so much to enjoy. 

    There are a couple of ways to get shipboard credit, Maryann, and the best way to get an onboard credit is to use a travel agent that offers the credit as an incentive to book your vacation with them. Many agencies offer onboard credit as a booking bonus for using their agency.

    If you previously had a cruise booked that had to be canceled by Disney Cruise Line due to Covid-19 restrictions, there's a chance you may have an onboard credit as a result of a balance of the Future Cruise Credit. Especially if you've changed stateroom categories, you may have had some balance left from your Future Cruise Credit that will show up as an onboard credit when you get on the ship.

    Some credit card companies offer shipboard credit if you use their card to pay for your vacation. It can't hurt to check with your credit card company to see if you would be entitled to anything like that.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Maryann! Your trip will be here before you know it, and I hope you are nearly shipshape and ready to sail.
