Default No. Euro Cruise- how much FX Currency to exchange?

I'll be taking a 10-day cruise with only day-stops in ports in Copenhagen (2d), Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg (2d), Tallinn, Gydansk & Oslo. With 7 diff currencies, how much USD should I exchange. Are ATMs & credit cards the best bets? Don't want to exch too much as it would cost to convert back. Thanks!

I personally would use my ATM card for "walking around money": I have found that the ships usually do not carry multiple currencies onboard. ATM cards do add a surcharge of anywhere from $0 to $8 for foreign, ATM withdrawals. The amount is dependent on your bank and type of account you have.

Credit cards are the best thing to use for most purchases. Visa is the best credit card to use because it is the most widely accepted.

Take care,
Mike
