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?

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.

This Is A Really Good Deal But...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Price is obviously a huge factor when booking and cruise or holiday, so looking through the deals on our website 599 per person for a 10 night cruise looks like a really good deal. A look at the itinerary though might make you think it`s a bit cold in this region in December.P&O`s Aurora is one of her much loved older, smaller by today`s standards, ships. This itinerary sets sail on 6th December 2017 and calls at Hamburg, at 2 day stop in Copenhagen, Olso, Amsterdam and Zeebrugge for Bru...

A Majestic Atrium the heart of the ship.

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...
