If I've already paid my deposit in Canadian funds can I switch over to US funds at this point without having to cancel and rebook? I like the cabins that we got and don't want to take a chance that they will be gone (and they would be in a heartbeat).

Anyone know how to protect what I have and yet pay the lesser rate? Peeves me to pay $$$ more for paying Cdn funds.

Is it worth the hassle to rebook? Dollar was probably around 90 cents when you put your deposit down. How much would you save anyway? I put down a deposit in April for a cruise in 2008 and I am not going to the extent of rebooking it and loosing my room. Just be thankful that you haven't paid the large amount.

You don't ever have to rebook. When you first booked the cruise you recieved a booking number. You can keep that booking number and still make changes. Ask your travel agent about that.

Difference is $60 pp for this cruise. RCCL is charging a 7% exchange rate. Better than some of the other cruise lines I think.

OK I am a Canadian myself and I am getting tired of the 2.5% premium that my credit card charges when $US Dollar transactions are posted to my $CDN Dollar card.(and you loose 2.5% and whatever the fluctuating value is during a refund)

Now that the two dollars are trading more or less at par, I decided to do 3 things - Get a $US MasterCard, buy a whole lot of $US, and open a $US chequing account. That way I dont have to worry about exchanges or premiums again.
