Although it is a good idea to have currency in foreign ports, if you charge purchases on a credit card (assuming they except the credit cards which are likely), you will get the best exchange rate available in the country at that date. If those ports are similar to others I have been to, the exhange rates near the cruise ports will be higher. The same might be true of exchange rates on the ships.
