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.
