With you all the way Wilba!!! The cruise ship conversion rate (no matter which line) will never, ever, be in your favour!!!Cynthia.
Never!!! let the cruise company convert, always say yes to the the credit card company ....... Wilba.
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.
