Have you considered applying for a credit card for the holiday and cutting it up afterwards? I use my credit card vary rarely, usually on holiday when it makes shopping so much easier than juggling currencies.

Princess website states Credit Cards, Cash or Travellers Cheques, as do most other cruise lines. Some have stated on this site that Princess have accepted Debit Cards at the check in. I don't see the point in 'risking it' myself.....Wilba.

From their website "We collect personal information such as name, address, telephone number and email address. If you book a cruise we will also collect your passport and credit or debit card details. Other information that we collect may include medical, health, mobility and dietary requirements. This allows us to process and fulfil your booking or other requests." So debit cards are accepted and when you register on-line you will be able to complete this part of the info accordingly.

Apologies I keyed in P & O and not Princess so the note below is not correct, best phone and ask to save any problems later but other lines do accept Debit cards so don't see why Princess don't but phone and check.

Princess do not accept debit cards. ring them yourself for the alternative such as paying in travellers cheques or cash when you first board. If you can get a credit card just for your holidays it is a very good idea. I would reccomend Nationwide (you can apply on the internet) as they have no charges for use abroad. Credit cards are not scarey - only if you dont pay them off ! If you cannot get a credit card due to your credit rating, then your only alternative is to take enough money with you in the form of cash (dollars) or travellers cheques as the on board currency is US Dollars.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

Or if you could invent or design your ultimate cruise what would it be like?If I was given control or designing a cruise, my first priority would have to be a rugby pitch! Most cruises if not all have some form of sports court, such as Basketball, football, but what if they had a rugby pitch! Now rugby is...

Well I have just returned from my 5th visit to Eurodisney with my family . Yet again it didn’t disappoint.There was 11 of us in total and we stayed in the Dream Castle just outside the gates and it was great !! We were up at 6.30 every morning and in the parks by 9 am impressingly first in the queue to get in on some days. Even though it was February it was still busy so we needed to fast pass some of the ride which always comes in handy. We were very lucky as we had a few days of glori...
