We paid our bill off in dollars at the desk - was very easy to do & avoid charge on credit card.

Hello…..You can get sterling changed on the ship into US dollars but it is better to take dollars with you or better still is to charge it to a Nationwide card, making sure that they charge it in dollars. Nationwide have a very good rate of exchange and you will gain substancially by doing this. Hope this is of help....Heathe.

If you're paying cash, you can use Sterling if you wish, but the exchange rate offered on board is quite a bit worse than you'd get at your local Bureau de Change. I'd recommend you change some Sterling to US Dollars before embarking on your cruise. The best option is really to pay by credit/debit card.

La Spezia ? where.

By Nicola Milligan

Mediterranean cruises are calling into several ports depending on the size of the cruise ship. So Livorno is commonly know as the port to visit Florence and Pisa. This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

Cuba

By Steve Fuller

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school.

Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
