Thank you Jill SC.
My cruise leaves from NYC, thus my concern about rough seas. On my very first cruise, out of Miami, I crossed the Gulf Stream and experienced my first case of mal de mer. But I was on a tiny ship, years ago, called Empress of the Sea (I believe), on a 4/3 to Nassau. Decommissioned eons ago(most likely).
Anyway, will see about the pre-purchase of Euros at my bank. Not very keen on all the add-on charges for credit card conversions and Atm fees. I figure where ever I save goes towards the next cruise! Will also look into TCs....I have never used them before (especially when the dollar was King of currencies), but if the exchange is fee-less, I'll get them.
Enjoy the Jewel!
One of my last RCCL cruises was on the Radiance of the Seas in its inaugural year. Had a fabulous cruise on that ship.
You are heading north and I am heading south. If I 'pass' you, I'll be sure to give you a wave! lol
