You will have to decide for yourself whether exchange rates will move in your favour or against you before you depart. If you think rates will worsen, it would be better to buy some currency now for on-shore spending; M&S usually gives a good rate. Airport exchange rates are usually unfavourable. Do NOT use on-ship cash machines or credit cards to draw currency; a debit card in a shore-based (bank) machine will give best rate (but beware of any 'per-withdrawal' flat charge, which should be displayed before you withdraw anything). Pay your onboard bill by credit card in ship's currency (e.g. dollars), NOT in pounds as the ship's conversion rate will be loaded. The same applies to anything spent onshore - you have the right to insist on local currency billing. And, if your credit and debit cards are Nationwide (or a few others), there will be no commission loading either. These tactics can easily save 3 - 5% on currency costs, well worthwhile.
Sorry, don't understand. Can you rephrase the question?
Not on the ship,we take euros and some dollars for the casino/tips, try Marks & Spencer the post office or use one of the money sites to get the best exchange rates,also check your rates on your credit card it may pay you to swap?hope this helps.
We use two methods purchase dollar travellers cheques which you can cash on the ship or in the casino, as all ships use dollars. You can shop around well before you go to get the best rate. We also use our bank card at the holes in the wall when offshore.
Can you change british money anywhere on board?
