I'm nervous about belongings (backpack w/just-in-case pull-ups for my 3 yr old, our spending money for the day and IDs..maybe a waterproof camera. Has anyone worn this in a waterproof bag w/lanyard?
I have not worn a waterproof bag with lanyard, but the small plastic cases work. I have an advantage as a guy and just put it in my pocket.
First--don't take anything valuable with you off the ship if you are that concerned. better to have piece of mind so that you can enjoy your excursion. Use a disposable camera and leave nothing of value in the backpack.
