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.

Hello again from frosty Yorkshire!Anyone who knows me , knows that I absolutely adore dogs. I have three dogs, Tilly, Oscar and Teddy and I love them all. Oscar hobbles around on three legs and Teddy is stone deaf, so Tilly looks after them both and she’s the little bossy madam!Another thing I love though, is going on holiday, and I know some people who either don’t go on holiday or only go away in the UK because they just can’t bear to leave their little pooches behind. Not...
