I agree with Wilba pay by credit card but at the bank on board ship you can cash your travellers cheques for cash to use in the casion or on shore. The bank will have dolars and Euro's.

The easiest way, & the most common method is credit card. The card details are taken prior to embarkation & you will receive a statement at the end of your cruise with your all of your spend detailed. Most lines do not accept Debit card & yes you can pay cash or travellers cheques as an alternative, but it does mean queuing up at the pursers desk on the last morning with hundreds of others with a multitude of reasons for being there to hand over your cash. Personally I can't think of as worse way of spending the last few hours on a cruise ship. Whatever you choose, Enjoy It... Wilba.

I've been on the Destiny twice, and did the Med last sight-seeing was VERY hot. Wonderful ship and crew, you are in for a great time. Do take some Stugeron with you (from Chemist) JUST in case you feel queasy - the Destiny is a bit wobbly! They swipe your credit card when you arrive, then all expenses on board (for drinks, tours, etc.) will be debited to that card on your departure. Drinks and tours reasonable prices. This is the easiest way to settle your account. I'd forget travellers cheques.

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...

Well the day has come and gone. As you know from my previous blog the big day has come and gone. And Im officially 40! Do I feel any different? Not at the moment but lets see if this whole ‘life begins’ is true…..On a more serious note I couldnt believe the news I read that disgraced ‘Captain Coward’ Francesco Schettino made a statement saying after arrival at his jail cell – he would cope with jail and start by going back to being a ‘ship boy’ ...
