    I suggest that at the embarkation procedure you register with a credit card, like Halifax's Clarity credit card, and mark on your initial registration that you want your card company to do any necessary conversions. You should resist any attempt by RCI to allow them to do the conversion as that will cost you more.

    I suggest Clarity because there are no conversion charges and the rate you will get will be the same as the Bank Rate and not that of the Tourist Rate.That is the best way to deal with it. Regards. ....Neil

        you could register your credit card then pay in $$ traveller cheques or $$ cash on the last night. but if you are going to pay with your CC then just do as Neil has said above.
        don't want to work, just want to cruise.
