The on-board account will be in dollars. If you have a Nationwide CC there is no commission charge when the dollars are converted to sterling, so it is much better to do this. Sometimes there is a reluctance to charge the account to the card without converting it at the on-board rate, but persevere and it will be done - check before leaving the ship.

I've never had a problem as to your last sentence. (A) Tick the box on the online check in form (B) Highlight the 'tick' with a highlight pen (C) Verbally point out A&B at the embarkation check in....Belt & Braces works for me......Regards Wilba.

I agree with johnson , we have traveled a great deal with celebrity but you must be very firm with the reception about the conversion. Celebrity are becoming a little to blasie with clients.
