Just been on the sister ship, Celebration & they have a currency exchange at reception as well. We took Krona with us but to save going back to P.Office,cashed them back in at Reception & offset them agaisnt our account onthe last day. We also have a charge free Nationwide card for larger purchases.

You can get cash from a 'Hole in the Wall' anywhere in the world & cash machines are as easy to use as they are in the UK & there is always an English Language option on the first screen. Personally I see little point in 'buying' travellers cheques or carrying large amounts of cash around. I just use the hole in the wall wherever in the world.

It is easy to use atm's. Ask your bank for a list of ATM's in the ports you are going to. Check the charges with them as well as there is usually a charge for using the atm from the atm provider, a charge both for exchange and a charge from your card provider. This usually means that it is best to take out a large sum each use rather than lots of small amounts. Using any ship ATM will cost EVEN more so beware! I have a Nationwide card I use for my holidays as they are free of all charges. I also order currency (cash) online with TR-----X and pick up at the airport as their rates are better than most banks,that well known shop and post offfice if you order your euros etc. ONLINE.

I love working in the travel industry and selling to me what is the best form of holidays Cruises. As part of my job I have been lucky enough to see some amazing ships and do several short cruises and really get a feel for what cruising is all about but always as part of work.I have looked several times at doing a cruise for my own holiday but as we are a family of 5 it has generally been a bit out of reach for us financially.

P&O and Cunard make changes to...

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...
