on board exchange rate


Recommended Posts

The foreign currency exchange fees on board ships is usurious. It's frequently a 12% penalty both ways. Except for small amounts of pocket money, it's to be avoided like the plague.


Your best option is to use credit cards or land based BANK ATMs. Another option is your local bank or an AMEX office, if you carry an AMEX card, before departure. The U.S. AMEX offices often have a better rate than the banks.
