The cruise lines have "CREATIVE CONVERSION RATES" for those that pay in other currencies
One cruise for us to pay in CAD the conversion rate was about 20% more than the daily bank rate... some cruise lines even Canadians cannot book with a US agent or direct we must go through the wholesaler

I think in the U.K. they also do not get their deposit back if they cancel even before final payment ...they must claim it through insurance
