Money, money, money and how to spend less of it (or at least get more bang for your buck).

Strong US Dollar Makes European Travel a Bargain

The US Dollar is near record highs against the Euro . This makes travel in Europe much less expensive than last year, for instance, when the euro was about 20% more expensive than now.  Hotels you book for your pre and post cruise stays and purchases you make in Europe will be at a substantial discount for those whose “home currency” is the US Dollar.
