Default Probably odd question...

I will be taking my first solo cruise next month. On previous cruises I was with family members and traveled in a group. With going solo my question is when you are in port and situated on the beach, what should I do with my cruise card, money, cameras, etc. when I want to snorkel. In the past there was always someone left behind to watch over these items. Any ideas?

Take as little as possible with you when you go ashore. I suggest purchasing a "Water Wallet". This is a waterproof wallet you wear around your neck or tuck in your bathing suit. It will hold your credit card, ship card and some cash.

The camera is the tricky part. I would just take a disposable waterproof camera or purchase a water proof housing for your regular camera (expensive).

Other things I would just leave on the beach and hope for the best. If you lose them then it's no major loss just an inconvenience.

Take care,
Mike

Default Waterproof cases & pouches is the answer...

Buy a waterproof case/pouch...follow link below for an example. I use a case and had it for years.

I believe you can buy a small waterproof holder that you can keep your card and some cash secured in your swim suit. I would not take my passport off the ship. Not sure what to do with your camera, maybe you can ask some people in the area to keep an eye on it for you if they are on the beach?

Best of luck, have fun.

I have one of those waterproof cases that I wear around my neck. I use it everyday on board and it keeps me from losing my ship card. I hear that one should not leave a book reader un attended, they are hot items for crooks. Funny thing, back in the day they sold waterproof cases big enough to hold a pack of smokes. Not anymore!

I never thought about my Kindle. I would be lost without that. Thanks for the tip.
