Payment Methods

The Detroit Princess Riverboat accepts several methods of payment to accommodate your needs, including American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. A check is also accepted if received within 5 days of when you book your tickets or your tickets will be invalid. If your event is within 5 days of your booking and you need to pay by check, please call our Detroit Princess office to discuss payment options.


Order Confirmation

If you do not receive a confirmation number (in the form of a confirmation page or email) after submitting payment information, or if you experience an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is your responsibility to confirm with the Detroit Princess Riverboat whether or not your order has been placed. Only you may be aware of any problems that may occur during the purchase process. The Detroit Princess will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive confirmation.


Billing Information Verification

Orders are processed only after a billing address, and other billing information, has been verified. Occasionally, we receive incorrect billing or credit card account information for a ticket order that can delay processing and delivery. In these cases, the Detroit Princess customer service will attempt to contact you, using the information provided at the time of purchase. If the Detroit Princess is unable to reach you after several attempts, the Detroit Princess may cancel your order and may sell your tickets to another customer.


Delivery Options

Your ticket should be printed when it appears on your web browser window, if purchase takes place via the Internet. If you do not have access to a printer, please write down your bar code numbers. All passengers will need at a minimum, their boarding pass numbers or an ID matching the name on the reservation to be allowed on the boat. If your ticket is purchased via phone the information provided at purchase is where your boarding passes will be sent.


Pricing Errors

If the amount you pay for a ticket is obviously or grossly incorrect, regardless of an error in a price posted on this web site or otherwise communicated to you, and regardless of whether a transactional malfunction of this web site or other Detroit Princess operated system, then the Detroit Princess will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid.
