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 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.

I am finding that a lot of my new customers are giving cruise a taste because of the hassles flying, big queues, over the top security, scan this, scan that and then hanging around for 2 hours for your flight, and that’s if it is not delayed. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...
