You can settle with a Direct Debit Card or by cash, Sterling cheques are acceptable with a cheque card but unless you register a credit or debit card on board a limit will be set of £150. Sterling Travellers cheques are accepted and you can, of course deposit an mount of cash with them that will allow your limit to be raised. You should be able to see you onboard account whenever you wish on the television screen in your cabin (perhaps someone else can confirm this)and I would advise you to do this and to keep all receipts as mistakes often happen on board all ships, ....Neil Dow.

Hi, i just got back from an ocean village cruise. you settle the bill at the end in cash or cheque or debit card. you just pick your method at the end. you can check your bill at ANY time with reception. they will just tell you your total.

No you cant see your bill on the tv in your room, but you do get a bill each week and on request from reception.

If you can't check your bill on the tv it sounds as though these ships are more out of date than I thought. But I still think that if you want to pay by cheque you should check that with Ocean Village i.e. P&O as it might prove difficult if it's of any size (and they usually are).

On most cruise lines you can pay cash up front onto your onboard account. They give you a type of debit card. We have always done this, you can ask at any time how you are doing, and see a statement of account. You will receive receipts everytime you purchase a drink from the bar, ao you can keep a check on what you are spending all of the time. You can top up with more cash if you need to. They will return to you on your last night any money you have in credit. So don't worry about it.

You can take cash and desposit it with the bursar and you will receive a statement every few days or ask at the bursars desk.i would recommend getting a credit card just fr the cruise and disposing of it afterwards it would save carrying a lot of cash.

No cash passes hands at all. You are given a swipe card which has your details and photo put on before boarding and you are given a bill the night before leaving the ship., this means you have time to look through the statement and check it is right assuming of course you keep all the receipts for anything you sign for.

Yes you can settle your bill at the end and you get an itemised bill the day before you leave and get your final bill the following morning, but you can ask for information regarding you bill im sure anytime on board and they will tell you how much your bill is, also you get a receipt everytime you purchase anything so you can also keep a check on your spending that way also, hope this helps, oh and go on there website and everything you need to no is on there, i have just come back from a cruise with ov2 on tuesday. enjoy your holiday.

Of course you can settle your bill by cash. As for checking your bill just go to front of house and ask for a running total. What we do is keep all receipts and have a quick add up towards the end of the trip. All is explained a couple of days before. All cruises have every question sussed.

All ships have a cashless system where you use your cruise swipe card which you will be issued with when boarding. you can settle your bill at the end with cash or cheque. you get a pre bill on about day 5 so you can see what you are spending or go to reception and they will be happy to give you a mid week bil.

We Love Manchester 10Kwe did it!!!

By Abbi Varela

….and what a fantastic day it was too, such a sense of achievement. As you probably guessed I took part last weekend in the We Love Manchester 10k run, along with my sister and friend. It was a really great day and the atmosphere was the best it has ever been.I can’t say the run was easy, in fact far from it! I was praying for cloud or even rain on the morning, running in the sun is so much harder. As we set off at 930 it was almost as if someone switched on the sun!! …it wa...

Queen Mary 2 or Queen Victoria?I have worked on both and have been lucky enough, in my role on both these ships, to have the freedom to use the public areas. I love what Cunard are all about, the elegance, sophistication, and choice of entertainment on board.Although the modern world does exist on the ships with Wi-Fi as a service that you can benefit from, for an extra charge.
