Recommended Posts

may need some extra euros while on my upcoming  NCL PEARL cruise. can guest services exchange us dollars for euros?. probably a poor exchange rate for the currency if they do but willing to accept that.

They will as a courtesy but the hit is pretty awful.  Any other option is going to be MUCH less.

You'd be surprised how easy it is to get money from an ATM once onshore at much better rates.  If at all possible, consider that option.  Years ago, I got Croatian money from an ATM in historic old Dubrovnik using my ATM card.  Amazing what can be done these days!

Yes, the cashier will have currency exchange open during specific hours that are noted in the dailies and there is also signage at the cashier's desk that indicates the open hours for currency exchange.

Also must be done before the last day or when your account is closed.

Besides a poor rate there will also be a transaction fee, was $10 on the Spirit 3 years ago.

Caveat Emptor!!   Buying and/or selling currency on a boat is like lighting cheap cigarettes with $10 notes.  Do it any other way.   You will almost certainly do better by going into a bank ashore to do it.
