No, I don't think so. In Bermuda, the US Dollar and the Bermuda Dollar are used interchangeably (see https://www.bermuda-attractions.com/bermuda_000079.htm )

Using USD, we've never had a problem with being short changed in the Caribbean. The people we met were hardworking, honest people. Not likely to scam tourists since this is their livelihood and...

God only knows why they offer the things they do: Napkin folding, scarf tying, hat making. Tango lessons. Golf. Maybe Cunard is just trying to keep their passengers happy (wherever they come from)?
