credit card question for uk cruisers

Recommended Posts

hi, can anyone for the uk advise.  on my last 2 cruises with RC last year they voided/blocked my credit card once it had been used onboard.   i spoke to my credit company (barclaycard) to find out why as there is never any problems with my account but it seems RC have an issue with barclaycard.  im looking to get a differnt credit card to avoid any problems again.   apart from mastercard has anyone one had a problem using post office or virgin money credit cards?

added “once used on board” for clarity

I use the Halifax Clarity MasterCard. It does not charge commission on fx, and you get the market rate. Never had any issues using it anyway including on RCI!

I use a Post Office Platinum card without any problems. They don’t charge a conversion fee and the exchange rate is usually quite good.

I’ve used American Express, MBNA and Halifax clarity cards with no problems.

Sorry to be a bit dim, but were you allowed to use this card and then it was

"blocked " or were you unable to clear your account and had to find other means? I only ask as we have just taken out a Barclaycard Platinum card as they don't charge FX fees and were intending using it on a forthcoming RCI cruise.
