Neil Down - Answered a Question by witton (28 Jul 08 23:27)

The answer is yes but I have a question, why would you want too, have you a surplus amount of US dollars that you want to use up ... or what? Just curious I suppose. The cheapest way to settle your account is with a credit card like the Nationwide or The Post Office which, providing you insist that they charge you in US dollars and do not let them convert it, offers a really good rate of exchange. The other proviso is that you clear the card of any outstanding amount when it is due and not owe anything on it as the APR is big, that's how they can afford to give such a good deal. Hope that is not too invasive and gives you some extra information. ....Neil .

If I can add further to Neil's response. To pay in cash on any cruise ship you pay at the pursers desk, & on the last morning of every cruise there is an extremely long queue of people with a multitude reasons for being there. If you are booked on arranged transport &/or need to be off at a certain time, I can't think of a worse way of spending the last hours on a cruise ship.

If you really want to pay your account with US dollars you can do this at anytime at the reception desk. You can usually check your onboard account on the stateroom tv. As Wilba has said there are usually long queues especially on a ship like Grand Princess with the number of passengers she carries, so try and pick a quiet moment, perhaps when passing.

Thank you for the advise. We intend to tacke American Travellers Cheques because we are travelling pre and post cruise.We thought we would practically settle the account perhaps the morning before the end of the cruise with what we had left and leave anything outstanding to be settled by credit card.

Hi yes I've done that, you can pay off all or part of your account in cash or travellers cheques, they'll give you a receipt and it will immediately come off your account which you can normally view on your stateroom tv have a good cruise - David.
