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.

FairFX, a specialist provider of foreign currency, offers a unique service for our Guests: order any foreign currency before your cruise departs, and it will be available at Guest Services at the beginning of your cruise*.

This service includes the following benefits:

  • Highly competitive rates
  • No exchange rate worries; your rate is fixed at time or order, not collection
  • No commission charges, and a buy back price guarantee on US Dollar, Norwegian Kroner and Euro notes, only when exchanged on board. 

To order currency for your cruise call 020 7621 0090 or email cruiseorders@fairfx.com. Orders must be placed at least 4 working days before cruise departure.

Telephone orders can be placed with FairFX: 8.30am to 6pm Mon-Fri. Both Bank transfer and Debit cards can be used as payment, however some may attract a charge levied by the card issuer. * Service may not be available where cruise embarkation is from a port outside the UK.

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.
