However I have remembered a post re tipping for Room Service which suggested having a supply of £1 coins to leave on the tray for the cabin steward.
Would be grateful for advice on this issue

This once came up during a passenger Q&A with the Purser (when they used to do them and when they were still called Pursers!). The preferred currency for tips is Sterling but staff are very happy to accept gratuities in any other currency as P&O will exchange it for them, commission free.Fortunately we use £sterling and it is the P&O currency onboard for the crew as well so i always give pounds.
