Default QE2 - What's not included, costs, QE2 finances onboard

Leaving NY Oct 7th for Southampton on the QE2 - 1st timers, 2 couples.

The other couple, w/o Internet access, is curious about what things one
has to pay for, specifically:

Soft Drinks, Tea, Coffee.

Also, how much are they if not included, and

what do drinks cost ? We know they are extra.

I'm curious if we can pay for extras with US$. I was just
unpleasantly surprised when I saw the converted cost on my credit card
for a flat we're renting in London. Master Card used a good exchange
rate [the original charge was in GBP] and added 1% fee. That's OK,
but then, JPMorgan-Chase, the issuing bank, added 2% more - I
looked and that is what the card agreement says. Anyway we don't
have any non-Chase cards so paying for any extras on the QE2
with cash would be cool.

Are the extras on the QE2 priced in Pounds or Dollars.

TIA, QE

The currency on board the QE2 is U.S. Dollars. Charges are made for soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, quite in line with what you'd expect on other lines. She's a wonderful wonderful vessel. Enjoy!

The QE2 operates with US dollars so there are no conversion charges.

Coffee and tea available in lido restaurant aft, plus some great cookies - no charge

Drink charges are normal for ships today. Tip added, so ignore the extra tip line, unless you want to reward extra good service.

Internet system allows one to write e-mail off-line then send for a one-minute charge, but read the instructions carefully, then practice to accomplish within the minute. It takes me about 45-50 seconds!

For those who enjoy a traditional sea voyage - dressy and no ports - there is no other.
