Default Jewel Istanbul to Athens Sept 14 2007

We will have an overnight stop in Alexandria, Egypt. We will need to buy Egypt pounds for sightseing entrance fees.
Can you use an ATM card to buy pounds or have to go to the bank and convert usd to pounds. Does the ship convert usd to Egypt pounds????
Thanks

We spent 2 days in Eygpt, and never exchanged any money for Eygtian Pounds.US Dollars or Euros were readily accepted.

Thanks Kuki,
We booked a day trip to Cairo with DeCastro and half a day for Alexandria and they said that sightseing entrance fees were in Egypt pounds. Much better if they also accept usd or euros.

Took the Jewel in June- the ship was converting dollars at the main desk but they will NOT buy the excess Egyptian Pounds back. They told one passenger, you own them, you are stuck with them!
We had the tour drive just stop at a local bank. Our private tour company included the admissions into the price of the tour to make it easier but we wanted a few pounds for "junk" and "tips/charity" to hand out...
