Just having thoughts on the same lines this exchange rate will effect what we pay in tips and drinks it may eventually up the cost of a cruise from US cruise companies P&O may be pleased ?

...and as much as I hate to mention the 't' word on this site, it is actually better to prepay the tips as they are 'locked in' at a specific exchagne rate that is currently beneficial to you. Let me explain: 7n tip is £36.85pp on RCI when you prepay. If not prepaid you are recommended to pay $9.75pd ( $68.25). At current exchange rates this is £45.50 - so therefore you are paying £8.65pp more when you wait till your cruise to pay. Multiply this by 4 people in the family, or by a 14n cruise in stead and this becomes a considerable sum. No flaming please, this is just the facts and another tip to 'save' money.

We have been lucky that we have bought gifts on princees which goes straight on to o b c and were given a very good rate also we read this page and took the advise to buy thomos cook travel cheques in dollars when the exchange rate was good and we had some spare cash. thank goodness I saw this otherwise it would be a bit tight on the cruise. you have to spend the gifts obc so we will be doing princess trips this year.

Just what cruisers needed. I even personally sailed on the Eclipse back in May for a mini cruise to Le Harve. It is a beautiful ship it has to be said and the food, service, cabins etc are all top notch. B...
