Hi y'all. I'll be cruising on this date with my Brother Jim. Where do you plan to exchange money?? Will they do it onboard the ship? We want to visit a nice cigar factory. Any suggestions? Anyone want to share a car/guide?
There are exchange places right after you clear customs (which you do in every port) to exchange for CUCs. You cannot do it on the ship.
Do be aware that there is an additional 10% fee for changing US Dollars. I opted to have Euros - ultimately it came out better to do it that way, but your mileage may vary.
Sorry I can't help with the cigars - I cannot tolerate any smoke so I avoided those places like the plague.
