- What currency do I take on-board?
All cruise lines operate a cashless system on board.

As a guide most European cruise lines will charge in Euros, American cruise lines in US Dollars and British cruise lines in Pounds Sterling.

- What are guaranteed cabins?
A guaranteed cabin means that you book a grade of cabin but not a cabin number. The cruise line will allocate you a cabin number and this can be anywhere on the ship. You will always receive the grade of cabin you have booked as a minimum but may be given a complimentary upgrade (for example you may pay for an inside cabin but be upgraded to an outside cabin). Please be aware that when booking a guaranteed cabin you will not be able to change this once allocated and because the cruise line can allocate the cabin anywhere on the ship we would not recommend this type of cabin if you are travelling as part of group that wish to be close together or have specific needs in relation to the location of the cabin.
