[ OT, but Nationwide may not charge a 'fee', but they make up for it in poor exchange rates. All swings and roundabouts I think. This evening Nationwide are only offering you $1.69 to the £, whereas M&S will give you $1.72, that is quite a difference, $3 every £100, no difference to the 'fee'. [What is interesting, is if you go directly to Travelex, who Nationwide use, the rate is again $1.72].Just be careful you are not duped anywhere by overseas establishments offering the 'service' of doing the exchange for and charging one's card in £. RCCL do this aboard, OK not MSC, but don't even think of doing it. MSC do it the 'normal' way
Have a great time Dave; we've sailed Melody, Lirica & Armonia & enjoyed all of them.
