What currency for Caribbean cruise?

Recommended Posts

We’re sailing on the Azura in the Caribbean on 16th November.

We’ve never been before and were wondering which currency is the best to take?

There are no US islands involved but I have read that the US Dollar is best to take.

Any advice gratefully accepted!

pretty much all islands use the us dollar regardless of their affiliations. most use it in addition to the euro for the french/dutch islands and sterling for the british islands. i wouldnt worry about having all the different ones. i am going on saturday on arcadia and i am just taking us dollars were going to bermuda,bahamas,grand turk,tortola,st martin,antigua,st lucia,barbados.the only other which will be euros is portugal on the way back.

Please be careful. Sometimes the markets in the Caribbean advertise their goods in Dollars but they don’t say which, Local or USA.  The local dollar rate is half the US dollar so always check before you buy.
