Default Carry-on Question

This may be a silly question but it just ocurred to me. When you get to the port and hand your luggage (and a tip) to the porters, do you hand over your carry-on (with change of clothes,docs,jewelry etc), or do you keep it with you until you can check in to your cabin? Sorry if it's a newbie question!!

You keep your carry on with you until you get to your cabin. A ship's, white gloved, attendant may escort you to your cabin and take the carry on to your cabin. You usually give that person a dollar or two.

Pack all your medications and valuables in your carry on and never let it leave your sight.

Take care,

keep your carry-on with you, do not give it to the porter. FYI - the carry-on has to go thru the security scanner at port, the scanners are the same size as the ones the airport uses. If your carry-on won't fit thru the scanner then you will have to have it checked thru with your large luggage.

Carry your "carry-on" yourself. Even though we allowed the porter to carry ours, except, of course, the cameras, jewelry and meds.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
