We were in Baltic & Fjords for 3 weeks last year - Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Russia, etc - all took euro's, no probs apart from maybe a little newsagent where you wanted to buy a postcard - not a problem.

No.They prefer their own currencies, particularly if you are spending a small amount such as cups of coffee or postcards. You may suffer from the conversion rate you get and may receive change in local currency. For larger purchases, use your credit card. How would you react in a shop in the UK to someone who would want to pay you in Euros?

You can use the euro, in markets, and tourist places, but will always get change with the local currency. Large shops I found prefer the local currency.

Just come back from Norway with Azura and found that despite being told otherwise and taking Krone all the places seemed to be happy taking euro's as well but with change being given in Krone. Everywhere was also happy with credit card, found many of the small shopkeepers and market traders were happy to give discounts for cash if you didnt want tax redemption certificates and these discounts were better than the saving re the tax.

Riviera Drinks Packages & S...

By Jill Johnson

Jill Johnson's blog

I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...
