I'm confused by the OP's title which is 'changing US dollars to euros' at the airport but actually asks about ATMs. I'm presuming that the OP understands that ATMs are not for exchanging one...

When we were on a Danube cruise with Viking in April the upper deck was open when cruising. There were loads of people sunbathing up there. I imagine there must have been a particular reason why...

'This side of the pond' means different things to you and me, Essiesmom!

I've not sailed with Thomson and it's years since I sailed with P&O. Thomson is considered more of a basic line (hence the...

Agree with YoungDubFan. You really can't compare the two but we love them both. It's lovely to glide along the river with things to see on either side, rather than being ou on the ocean with only...

We found the bed on a Viking longship just fine. I don't remember details but I don't think it can have been very soft, because we don't like soft beds. But when you're buying a new bed, you don't...

River cruising is totally different from ocean cruising and I think you're going to find that they all include tours. But the first thing to say is that they are not all bus tours. Because river...

I imagine you must be thinking of narrow boats, which are popular for holidays on canals in the UK. Barges here are cargo vessels (except for odd historic or ceremonial vessels like the Royal...

I don't think any insurance company would insure you against this, or if they did the cost would be astronomic. Disruption to river cruises in Europe due to high or low water is so common that it...

I staayed at the Smeraldo a few years ago. The rooms are small but that's typical of Italian hotels, other than the luxury ones. I'd be happy to stay there again. It's a very convenient location...

Princess certainly doesn't attract a young party crowd. If that's what you want, you'd be better off with Carnival. Otherwise, take everything with a very big pinch of salt. It's the type of...

We did the Romantic Danube itinerary on the Viking Freya in April and would thoroughly recommend it. The stops were very varied and there is some lovely scenery along the way.

I really enjoyed Oslo, far more than Stockholm though that may be a minority view. As it's not either or, I'd go for the itinerary which allows you to visit both, particularly if you're not going to...

That seems very strange. If it was me, I'd try calling again (as if for the first time) and see if you get a different answer from a different rep. By the way, I wasn't aware that Viking have more...

My TA has never added a surcharge for paying for a cruise by credit card. If yours does, I suggest you find a different TA.
