The Nationwide CC gives you the commercial exchange rate rather than the tourist rate, usually around 5 cents more. Why take TC's when you can use a CC although I am sure you will be able to change them.

To add to the answer, quite apart from using a more favourable exchange rate, Nationwide does not charge any commission when charging a foreign currency transaction to its credit card (and I believe the Saga card is the same). But you will not get these advantages if Celebrity charges your card in your own currency (£) which it says is the normal arrangement. It cannot insist on this and you can opt out (at check-in time) and will almost certainly get a better deal if you ask to be charged in $US. As far as I can tell, there should be no requirement at all for any dollars on board the ship and the only currency required will be that for on-shore visits - can anyone confirm this? Local currency is probably available on board but at a poorer rate than using a debit card on shore, and with a charge for using the cash machine. Here again, the Nationwide debit card is commission-free. (No, I don't work for Nationwide!

FUNICULAR FUN IN BERGEN!

By Hannah Wilson

So on our recent Fjords cruise on Balmoral myself and Holly decided that having splashed out, quite literally, on the Rib Adventure in Eidfjord that we would just do our own thing in Bergen, get off the ship and wander around, however, just outside the cruise terminal we happened upon a Hop On Hop Off Bus Stop and decided that we would have a tour round Bergen on that, covering more ground. The tour takes around an hour and you get a good taste of the city, Norway’s second largest, all ...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
