I never cease to be amazed that people will carry large sums of cash around with them - just what is the point? Cash once stolen is entirely unrecoverable and most insurance companies will not cover you for large cash losses. At least with credit/debit cards and a card protection policy one has protection against theft, and you can almost invariably get cash as you want it from ATMs or the ship itself (albeit an a poor exchange rate in the case of the ship.

I thank you for your opinion and your concern, I presumed that there would be a safe in our suite and of course that the safe would be safe! However unfortunately it does not answer my question, but thanks anyway.

As you have not given us a cruise line then yes if the currency on board is the US$ if not you will have to change it back.You will still have to register a credit card with them and pay as much cash as you wish on the last can with some lines pay cash up front but make sure that you can get what ever is left in the kitty.Check with the cruise line when you pick one?

I understand what the Taylors are saying and you might consider next time buying US Travellers Cheques which are safe and RCI ships will change them with no charge. I have never heard of any problem with things being lost from cabin safes though. However to the point of your question. Yes there is no reason why you will not be able to pay you account with cash. I would, however, settle most of it a couple of days before the end of the cruise because the queue at Customer Relations on Indy can be very long on the penultimate and last day. Regards. ..... Neil.

The world busiest cruise ports.

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

With 2016 coming to a close, and no doubt another recording breaking cruise year I though I would do a bit of research into the world busiest cruise ports and get some insight into just how many passengers these hubs handle. To be honest the numbers are massive!!I don’t think the number 1 spot will shock many, but the Port of Miami welcomed over 5 million cruise passengers. As a major gateway to the Caribbean and the Bahamas, with countless ship based there year round. Transport links w...

The Cuban Revelation!

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

No I don’t mean Cuban Revolution………Cuba – One of the most enigmatic places on the planet, is suddenly becoming a rather popular tourist hot-spot, but more importantly a winning cruise destination, a revelation, one might say……..Since the recent talks of a reconciliation between Cuba and the USA, the country has now become a new attraction for many a nationality.Of course here in the UK we have been holidaying in Cuba for years, and although it’s...
