Time to celebrate'
St John Heaven!!!!!! Royal Princess anchored at Princess Cays Sea Walk Deluxe Balcony Cabin Inside the cathedral at Rio.  We hired a lovely guy called Benni  from a site "Tours by Locals" for a day in Rio and what a brilliant day it was he showed us different sights to the norm and we thoroughly enjoyed our day,  There were some impressive whale bones on display at Stanley.  Would not like to meet one of those whilst swimming George the reindeer who lives in Stanley, Falkland Islands.  We were lucky the weather was calm enough for us to land there.   Many times the seas are to rough to tender in. Puntas Arenas closed for Christmas, with no-one on the streets, except passengers off the ship. All you could hear was police car sirens occasionally.

Although the cabins were smaller on Oceana than we anticipated, having cruised on Ventura earlier in the year, they still provided the excellent comfort that we have come to expect from P&O. The service was excellent, whether cabin, restaurant, or bar...  Read More >>

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.

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

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?

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.
