I was wondering . . . I know that the Sail & Sign cards are de facto while on the ship, but what about when in the various ports? Do they take USD (American dollars)? And do they have ATMs on the ships? Thanks all!
Yes the boats have atm machine, cost like $5.00 dollars or so a transaction and off the boat they love american money. Advice though, take small bills, they will try to tell you they dont have change. Happy Sailing!!
Many places will give your change back in foreign currency...which may mean you probably aren't getting what you should.
At Carnival backed stores we always feel safe using our credit card...that way the exchange rate if figured for us by the credit card company. So we usually take a mix of cash, travelers checks, and a credit card.
