Have lots of people been pick-pocketed? I'm completely paranoid now!!!
I just returned from a 28 day cruise to Europe. We were warned at every port about pick- pockets. Luckily, we had no problem, but we were very cautious. I always had a bag of some sort on me. I usually kept my money in my pants pocket with a safety pin pinning it closed.
We have never had a problem in the Caribbean. The only place I would be concerned about would be in Jamaica.
