I would recommend taking a small amount of Euros, in case the ATM at the bank is really lined up or out of order or something......that way you can at least buy a coffee or a taxi ride until you get...

You did that. Your opinion is not more or less valid that anyone else's, and neither of you is "correct". Move on; you're still defending things. If someone is seeking information on what cruise...
