- Do they accept EUR or is it mandatory to pay in USD...
- I have already prepaid gratiuties in my cruise cost...any other additional expenses that I should factor in ?

Looking forward to your response, when convenient.
My review of the cruise is posted on the RCI board and in the Reader Reviews for Voyager OTS under RCI.
The ship was beautiful and the service was great. The food was good and plentyful. I believe you can have your onboard account in USD or EUR, onshore plan to use EUR. The only additional costs is the VAT onboard. They add 18% VAT to EVERYTHING onboard, every drink, every service, every souvinier, every spa service and anything else you can purchase onboard. They don't mind if you have a bottle or 2 of water, but don't plan on bringing a case of water onboard, they run everyone and all packages through security everytime you return to the ship. We had a D1 balcony in the aft corner of deck 10. Because it was in the aft corner, it was a different shape and slightly larger than the standard D1 balcony, we loved it and had a huge balcony.
