We always take the currency of the cruise line we sail with on cruises. With MSC, we take euros as that is the currency of the ship and is easier for the staff with Gratuities and take sterling to exchange for local currency at the ports of call when we get off, as it gives a better rate. We then change back to sterling at the end of the day, unless the currency is the same for the next port of call. We never come home with any currency we can not use in the UK or Europe. We find Dollars are frowned upon in the Middle East.

Thanks Wilba. I'll take some euros for OB spend and some UK £'s for exchange as I know the ships don't give a very good exchange rate.
