Q. What is the currency on board and how do I pay for items I buy?

For your convenience all of our ships operate a 'cash free' environment with everything priced in pounds sterling. To make any purchases on-board you just need to present your cruise card.

Our ships do not accept cash, except at the Reception desk for purchase of foreign currency and the settlement of your on-board account.  In order for charges to be posted on to your account you will need to register your credit card or Visa/MasterCard Debit card at check-in.  All transactions will be charged to your account in pound sterling.

This information can be found in our brochure under the 'Essential Information' section.

Full details of your on board account options can be found in our question How do I settle my on board account?.
