Royal Caribbean's conversion rate is not all that bad but normally it is better to use your card issuer to convert especially if it is a credit card by issued Nationwide or Post Office. ... Neil.

ALWAYS select the option [b]where the card issuer converts the sum.

I think it depends on which card you use. I never cease to be amazed by the terrible exchange rate that Barclaycard use on top of a hefty fee for using abroad so if using that card would let them do the coversion. However, I intend to use my Nationwide card which always gives a great conversion rate and never makes any additional foreigh transaction charges, so will be insisting we are charged in $ when we sail next month.

When i was on Indy I took a reasonable sum of $ from UK (a local travel agent had a half decent offer). This was kept in my cabin safe. I also kept an eye on the "VIEW BILL" option on the cabin telly and when we were at our last port got a quick top up from a local bank, and as it was Barclays the rate was o/k "ish". I then paid in cash on my last night after having my last drink. The reception is 24/7 and doing it then saves the moring rush at disembarkation. And despite having had a few drinks i was able to sort the bill dead easy. Have a good holiday !!!!!!!!!!!!!11 .

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
