Would you advise getting some Egyptian Pounds for small purchases & tips ? does the casino allow you to buy chips etc & charge it to your account ? We are on the May 31 cruise .
You can put up to $2000 a day on your shipboard account for casino chips or tokens. If you want a cash advance instead there is a service fee.
I don't think you need any Egyptian Pounds, dollars are readily accepted.. the exchange is $1 US - 5.7 Egyptial Pounds.
For Greece ports you'll need Euros. ATMs are not difficicult to find.
