Hi I have just come back from OV2, rate of exchange on ship was 1.99 dollars to the pound which wasnt too bad so you can take sterling with you to change on ship if you run out of dollars, duty free shopping in St marteen is cheapest anywhere 200 english cigs £6 dont buy on ship.

US dollars are widely accepted around the Caribbean. Pounds sterling is not usually accepted except by banks. However, when taxi drivers etc are giving you a dollar price make sure it it US and not the local dollar.

Hi Jan Take US dollars they can be used everywhere in the Caribbean and the rate is still excellent.If you haven't got one already I would suggest a Nationwide credit card for general purchases ashore not only a some things guaranteed by Visa but the rate of exchange that Nationwide give you is almost the Bank rate and not the Tourist rate so an extra bonus......regards Id.

I have just returned from the same cruise and US Dollers are widely used but if you can get some eastern caribbean dollers you will get a much better deal on some of the islands for your souvenirs etc. Barbados have their own currency too but you can use US dollers there too.

USD are useful, you need a few caribbean dollers for special prices on local souvenirs and euros are used on a couple of the islands.

By Stacey Williams

This week I will be talking about the beautiful port of Monte Carlo. i hoped to write about New York but my pictures are taking time to upload so I will do this next week!Monte Carlo is an area of Monaco that some would class as the capital. It is a very small place with a population is around 3500. It is an area situated at the base the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera.

Celebrity Edge Looks Incredible!

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So yesterday afternoon I was lucky to attend an online preview of some of the accommodation and facilities aboard Celebrity Cruises most ambitious ship ever built; Celebrity Edge….I’ll be honest when I first heard the name of the ship, I thought it was an awful choice. However it’s since grown on me, and after watching the presentation, I now see the logic in the name Edge.You see this ship is first and foremost all about design and technology, so phrases like ‘Cutting...

Well I have just returned from my first ever visit to a River cruise ship. What a way to start!!! I visited the AmaPrima and Ama are rated the highest standard of ships in Europe according to the Berlitz guide.I flew to Amsterdam and we got picked up by a brand new AMA coach and transferred the short distance to the centre of city to meet the ship, the first eye opener for me was exactly how near to the centre of the town the ship was. If I am being really honest I really didn’t know w...
