I agree with previous posts in the sense that a safe is always the best place to put any valuables(?) on a cruise ship. Last year I got a topaz ring (my mom got tanzanite) in St. Maarten which we kept in the safe until we got off the cruise ship. As for the problems with leaving luggage in the hall, I would put all of my truly valuable(?) items in my carry-on luggage in the room with me. I doubt that anyone would try to steal your clothes! (lol!) Well, I would not spend too much time worrying about crimes on the ship because that might ruin the vacation! Just be cautious where you keep any valuables(?) as you would anywhere else! Have fun!!!
