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 day.you 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?

Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Garcia (16 Oct 08 15:52)

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.

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

Ciao I am Sailing

By Frankie Bond

Frankie Bond's blog

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
