Default How much cash should I take?

My wife and I are sailing on Legend in August on to Scandinavia & Russia (first time on RCI). I'm wondering how much cash I should take with me. I've heard that rates of exchange are quite good on board, so I could just change a bit money for each destination as and when. However I live in the UK, so would I have to take US dollars with me, or will they exchange sterling? Or will they put it on my ship account?

How much am I likely to spend in the various places (probably taking ship excursions in St Petersburg, Tallin & one day in Copenhagen, and sorting myself out in Stockholm, Oslo and Helsinki) given that I'll use credit card for any tours or larger souvenirs.

Only been on Costa to Greece & Turkey (where they're happy to accept any currency on the whole, plus we did ship excursions at every port), so any advice gratefully accepted - especially if anyone's done this cruise b4.
