Exchange Currency on QM2?
 
Does anyone know if it is possible to exchange a small amount of US Dollars for Pounds Sterling on board the QM2 before disembarking in Southampton? All we need is enough to tide us over until we find an ATM on land.

Thanks!

Thanks! We were able to exchange at currency with no problem, but, they do charge a $1 fee per exchange.

Thanks, Mrs. B...assume this means you have returned from your crossing and were able to exchange dollars for pounds at a nominal fee of $1.

Is this correct?

Hope you had a good time.

Yes, Em, that is correct. Of course, as it turned out, we didn't need to use any of the money until we got to London, in which case, there are ATMs (with usually the best exchange rate) abounding (altho there are typically fees associated with this, too, depending on your bank).

Yes, we had an excellent time; absolutely loved the QM2 and will hope to get back on board her sometime soon!

Thanks so much, Mrs B. I hope your next QM2 experience comes earlier than you expect!
