    Hello Moms, My family and I are off for our 2nd DCL adventure, first it was the Bahamas in 2013 and now the 7 night Mediterranean cruise in August 2015. My question is what currency is used onboard the DCL when in Europe. Is it Euro, USD or other?

    Ahoy there, Susan!

    Fellow repeat cruisers know what I'm talking about... you too, must have had a memorable Bahamian voyage a few years ago -- so you're back for more fun and adventure!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be cruising the Mediterranean in August of this year. You and your family will have a blast! My family and I loved visiting all the wonderful ports of call in the Mediterranean and I only had to to unpack once!   Score for Mom :-).

    While you are sailing in Europe, all your transactions onboard the Disney Magic will be charged in US Dollars. You'll notice that when you check your cruise reservation on the My OnLine Check-In page, all the costs for onboard activities as well as port adventures will be priced in US Dollars as well.

    Just in case you need local currency in the country you are visiting, you can go to Guest Services and they can help with currency exchange. When we traveled to Europe, we didn't have any issues using the local ATM's at the port cities we visited. It was very convenient... though they do charge extra fees. We also didn't have issues with using our credit card there for souvenirs. 

    Enjoy your Med Cruise, Susan! Don't forget to share photos with us on Twitter at #DCLPhotos. If you need more information to help you plan your upcoming cruise vacation -- we'd love to hear from you again. We're always happy to help!

    Wishing you a pixie dusted day!
