Ooooh another thought on Credit Cards, if you do dedcide to take that option be advised the Cunard will add a 3% handling fee for exchanging the rate from $UD to £GB so you find a card which does not charge for exchanging the rate (we use the Post Office as their card has no annual fee either).
You should ask then ask at check-in for the cruise account to be kept in Dollars.
