For the lowest grade stateroom they want $479 vs. (Eur)347 = (443 when converted to $ at Fri exchange rate).
Anyone ever buy a cruise using a foreign currency? Will my debit card company tack on fees that will penalize me for selecting a foreign currency?
I book mine in Canadian dollars since I live in Canada. I also have the option of booking in US dollars. I can't pay for mine with a debit card (my debit card only works by sliding it through a machine and then me entering a PIN).
I'd suggest checking with your bank to determine whether there will be fees. That way you are getting accurate information directly from the source.
