What currencies will I need to take on my cruise?

The currency you need during your cruise will depend on the destinations on your itinerary. The on board currency for cash payments is Sterling.

We're delighted to work in partnership with FairFX, giving you instant access to virtual cards so you can transact in 20 major currencies with no fees, in over 190 countries wherever Mastercard is accepted. You can manage your account both online and in-app, putting the world in your wallet.

Benefits of using FairFX for your currency include:

  • Your money is protected via safeguarded bank accounts
  • Instant access to virtual cards, so you can spend for free in upto 20 major currencies
  • Earn up to 3.5% cashback at top UK high street retailers
  • No subscriptions or monthly fees

Because FairFX accounts don’t fall under FSCS, your money is protected via safeguarding. We hold your funds in specially designated, safeguarded bank accounts, which keep them separate from our other assets. Please see FAQs for more information.

Should you wish to purchase currency on board your ship, major currencies for each cruise are available from Guest Services at competitive high street rates.
