Been to the Caribbean a few times (you will love it) and going again in January I have only ever used $US and have never seen euros quoted or used Try to avoid the local dollars and if you pay in US insist on change in the same currency or you could be left holding the local notes which can be a problem I have always found taxis reasonable but agree a price first In some ports people carrier type taxis take tours to the sights usually for much less than the ships tours.

The only islands you may find the Euro in use are the French ones. We found it necessary to use Euros in Martinique but we did not request to pay in dollars so it may have been possible.

We paid in dollars in Martinique but got Euros for change. The Euro is their preffered choice,however most stores will take the dollar. In Dominica we went river tubing and the guides were asking us to change their dollar tips to sterling or euro's as it was worth more to them. All other Islands we visited used the US $.

By Gemma Coles

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
