Hiya. we have booked the cruise for november and palma, lisbon, madeira and lanzerote it is euro, cape verde has their own currency which we can get on shore or they may take euros, brazil is the reals but they take euro and the american dollar, we may get better exchange rate if it is possible to get some reals in the uk.i am really looking forword to the cruise as i have only been on 7 day cruises before. goodluck with your booking and don t pay to much.

We went on this cruise last year, for the European ports Euros will suffice, we did not spend in Cape Verde but I believe they will accept Euros or US Dollars, it is wise to take some local currency for Brazil, there are plenty of ATM's everywhere, but no exchange facilities are available on the Island Star, the US Dollar and credit cards are accepted by most shops and restaurants but not all, the street markets will only accept Brazilian currency, again some will accept US dollars but will give you change in reals. It is a wonderful trip, apart from Cape Verdi which is a real third world country which we found a little unnerving, Brazil is something else, great wealth ( with fantastic shopping malls to prove it) and sadly also great poverty, but friendly charming people, Rio is a virbrant City with wonderful beaches and sightseeing. It was a long trip but very good value for mone.

Had you asked me a month ago if it was worth paying that bit extra for Royal Caribbean I would have said a few hundred pounds possibly, a thousand or more no way. Ask me now and I would say absolutely.For families I have no doubt that Independence of the Seas should be on the top of the list for your next cruis...

It is always a problem if you are a regular cruiser, especially if you like a particular Cruise line as eventually you find you have been there, done that and got the T-shirt so to speak, sometimes several times over.Thats why it always exciting when a cruise line ventures to new destinations or offers new exciting experiences for you to try.That is exactly what Azamara Club Cruises are doing for 2020.They have just unveiled their exciting 2020 itineraries, which in their words will beFeaturi...
