We are going on our first cruise in March and will be visiting Vanuatu and New Caledonia my question is will we have to get VATU to spend in Port Vila or do they accept the Pacific Frank as in New Caledonia

Thanks in advance for any help

Vanuatu don't accept the Pacific Frank however if you do happen to have some left over you can exchange it for vatu in Vanuatu that's if you haven't already changed it back on ship. You can at most places use Aud but the prices will be rounded off well in the business's favour.

I'd suggest not exchanging on ship as you can catch a bus to town from the dock for about $2. then change enough at Goodies (few places along the main road) for spending money for the day.
