Default how safe are the safes??

Going on Carnival Paradise March 2004. My husband is debating which camera to take. The Canon Elf or his Canon 35mm..did I mention he is a professional photographer and quite worried about his equipment. So the safes in the rooms, are they done with a code, a key or how are they locked?

Thanks for all your help

While we are on this question, are the safes big enough to keep a laptop inside?

The safes are about the size of a breadbox, maybe a bit smaller. A laptop will not fit in one. A professional camera probably not either. The camera itself might, but if you bring a large zoom lens it probably will not.

You can keep wallets, jewelry, money, keys in them easily. I'm not positive about the Paradise but it is a Fantasy class ship and locking the safe may be done with a key (as on the Fantasy) or swipe of a card with a magnetic strip.

The safes I have seen on my last 5 cruises were not opened with a key. You enter your own code.

I used paradise's safe in Sept and it was fine. You set it with a card and we left our money and other (small) valuable things. No problems.By the way, you'll love the Paradise!
