Hi the dollar is used on board the navigator. you can pay in cash dollars to save on transaction fees but you still have to leave credit card details. The Sea Princess and PO let you pay in sterlin.

We did the weekend break in April and our bill was in dollars. Were very disappointed as it seemed to attract stag/hen parties and wasn't usual standard.

It is rare for any cruise ship to use the pound the main currency is the dollar. But as you will find out it is a cashless society everything you spend in the bars, shops, bingo etc is charged to your stateroom and you settle up at the end of the cruise by using travellers cheques or a credit card and given the rate of exchange against the dollar at the moment you will get a good deal. In some ships you sometimes get two bills one after te end of the first week so you can check it is OK and then the final during the night prior to you departure. the credit card makes it all very easy if paying by travellers cheques you will need to go down to the bank/pursars office and queue to settle your account. The only place where it is not a cashless society if you gamble in the casino but you can cash your travellers cheques there at the casino bank.

When you board any RCCL ship you are each given a "Sea Pass Card" which is the key to your cabin and also used for charging any goods and services (drinks - spa services etc. to your account. It also acts as your pass to get off - and back onto the ship. The ONLY time you use actual money(US dollars)is in the Casino, although there, you can even get up to $2000 per day against your Sea Pass Card. When boarding you give details of how you will pay at the end of the cruise - usually tender a credit-card although you can pay by cheque or cash, but this is not as fool-proof as a credit-card.

Did you know that 10 Years ago around 60,000 British Holidays makers took a Nile cruise compared to approximately 4000 in 2016. That is a staggering decline in anyones books and despite the troubles in Egypt a decline that no-one could have possibly anticipated.No one can deny that Egypt has had its troubles with the Egyptian revolution in 2011 leading to a coup and the leadership changing hands twice before the 2014 Leader General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi took power. There have been a number o...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
