Hi Daniel

We have always taken $ and we will be taking them again when we return in May, not sure about Abu Dhabi as this will be our first time when we change planes there but I'm sure the duty free will take dollars.

When do you go in May?

Keith

Definitely US$ For Meeru. If you're only briefly in the airport then same currency for there too

Hi
When you get your $ make sure you get low denominations. Plenty of 1s and 5s. These are useful for tipping. Currency providers try to give you larger denominations which are useful for tipping your key staff (e.g room boy and table waiter) but not so useful for the staff you have only occassional involvement with. Just to clarify - tipping is not expected as it is on some cruises- there's no compulsion. We don't everyone or that often. The staff do go so way above and beyond that you feel you should recognise their efforts. They really are a lovely bunch and probably the reason that every single week of the year they have repeat guests on the island and it's not uncommon for that number to exceed 100.

A late reply I know but, the first time we went to Meeru and not knowing the etiquette, we left some Dollars on the table for our waiter, the next time we went he handed them back to me, so I said no that was a tip for you, he then curtly said don't leave it on the table, hand it to me personally next time
So now we don't tip anyone until we leave
