What safety precautions do you take on the ship?

We never leave anything out of value. We have a portable door alarm that we take with us...and use And we never go around alone.....

A portable door alarm sounds very cool. How does it work and what does it cost? Where do you get one?

Why would you not go around the ship alone?

Like Larry I canīt understand why you would not go around alone.
A ship is such a safe place. What do you think, could happen to you.
I often walk around alone, while my husband is taking a nap and never felt uncomfortable.

Pinktoes,

I'm also curious to learn why you obviously consider cruise ships fairly unsafe places.

I've been on dozens of ships and I never felt less safe than at home.

Or are the ridiculous "cruises are utterly dangerious and you will likely not return from them alive" discussions in the U.S. mass media and Congress starting to show first signs of success?!?

If you need an escort maybe you can ask one of the ten year olds walking confidently about the ship- with the blessing of their parents. Seriously- Camp Carnival lets ten year olds sign in and out on their own all day and night. That is a pretty good indication of the level of risk that walking around a cruise ship presents.

We just take the usual precautions. Lock the door when we retire for the night. Put the passports and cash in the safe. Don't get liquored up to the point that you could fall and hurt yourself.

I'd be more concerned for my safety at a typical hotel or on a city street than I would on a cruise ship.

I got a portable door alarm many years ago as a free promotional gift. I played with it around the house and found it to be quite buggy. It would go off sporadically, and sometimes wouldn't alarm if the door opened. Of course, I imagine they have better models on the market these days.

I know! It's like: hello? Oh you mean, never go alone in my bathing suit with a drink in my hand, passkey between my teeth, completely oblivious to anyone and everything? Never go alone... for a walk? Never go alone? How else am I supposed to go find my 7 year old who walks around alone all the time?
