Hi I have just come back from OV2, rate of exchange on ship was 1.99 dollars to the pound which wasnt too bad so you can take sterling with you to change on ship if you run out of dollars, duty free shopping in St marteen is cheapest anywhere 200 english cigs £6 dont buy on ship.

US dollars are widely accepted around the Caribbean. Pounds sterling is not usually accepted except by banks. However, when taxi drivers etc are giving you a dollar price make sure it it US and not the local dollar.

Hi Jan Take US dollars they can be used everywhere in the Caribbean and the rate is still excellent.If you haven't got one already I would suggest a Nationwide credit card for general purchases ashore not only a some things guaranteed by Visa but the rate of exchange that Nationwide give you is almost the Bank rate and not the Tourist rate so an extra bonus......regards Id.

I have just returned from the same cruise and US Dollers are widely used but if you can get some eastern caribbean dollers you will get a much better deal on some of the islands for your souvenirs etc. Barbados have their own currency too but you can use US dollers there too.

USD are useful, you need a few caribbean dollers for special prices on local souvenirs and euros are used on a couple of the islands.

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...
