Default Are $2 bills and $1 coins worth it in Alaska or hindrance

We leave for Alaska in two weeks for our first cruise. We were wondering if $2 bills and $1 coins are really worth it for being remembered? Everywhere I go, there seems to be no place in the register to store either. Can I just bring singles and be ok?

As far as the porters in Vancouver are concerned will it be ok to tip in leftover CDN dollars should we have any after our three day stay in Vancouver?

Legal tender is legal tender. Plain old singles will be fine. And in 40+ years of tipping around the world, I've never encountered anyone who has rejected the tip because it's in the wrong currency.

Im thinking in Alaska 2.00 bills would not be so great. I would just go for the good old 1.00 bills. See you on Infinity 8/29!

as someone who works on tips, I can tell you we don't really remember anyone who tips one or two dollars, no matter what the form.

Just go with the generic currency, and if you really want to stand out, tip generously.
