Most ships work on a cashless system where your credit card details are taken and your then issued with a swipe card for each transaction you make on board. If you dont have a credit card then usually they will take pounds/dollars/euros (exchange rate can be very poor) at the start of your trip and you are then capped on how much can be spent.

I put my wallet, passport etc in the safe and forgot about them for the week. You will need some money for on shore cash purchases.

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at www.CRUISE.co.uk our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that!
