Friday evening is spent ashore so you will need spending money for dinner, drinks, shopping and souvenirs. The local currency is the Bahamian dollar, which is equivalent to the U.S. dollar and are interchangeable. If you have U.S. dollars it is not necessary to exchange currency. You can charge your specialty classes, boutique purchases and crew gratuity to your cabin account. Aqua Cat accepts VISA, MasterCard and Discover.
