Cruise away your exchange rate blues

With the pound falling in value against the euro, Britons have been advised to save money by opting for a cruising holiday this year.

According to, paying for a cruising holiday in sterling and using pounds on board is the most cost-effective way to travel - and with many onboard shops also accepting sterling, passengers need not worry about currency fluctuations.

Travelling from destination-to-destination by ship also means that transport costs are eliminated, allowing holidaymakers to budget effectively and have greater control over their finances.

For Britons looking to save even more money, Cruisecritic recommends cruising onboard a ship which uses the dollar as its main currency - "putting the exchange rate in the pounds favour".

Ships which use the dollar as their main onboard currency include Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Jade, Princess Cruises' Grand Princess and Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas.

One pound currently buys €1.26.
