Never been on so much as a row boat. But find we're off on the Rotterdam for 2 weeks from 14th May. So excited.

Um but can someone tell me the go as far as securing your passports etc while you're off enjoying the sun on deck. I don't want to have to drag along a purse everytime I leave the cabin.

Help please guys!

You will have a small safe in the cabin.

Welcome to Cruise-chat, and congratulations on your first cruise! You are in for a wonderful experience. We've usually just locked our valuables in the safe. We've left cameras, my purse, his lap top, etc., in the room and never had any problems. If you're really worried, the purser's desk has safes as well. Best wishes!

Yes, they are secure. You program your own combination/pass code (at least on RCCL ships).

If the safe was truly secure once you programmed it the staff couldn't get in it if you left the ship without giving them the combination or reprogram it if you forgot your combination. I've never had a problem but don't be too sure you're the only one who can access the safe. Leave the Rolex at home or snorkle in it.

Cheers, Neil

Hi Michele, Safes are very secure. No need to worry. We put all travel documents, passports and my jewelry in the safe. Never once had a problem. On Carnival, I slide my credit card(don't worry...no charge applied) through on the safe. It reads my card as my combo to open/close the safe. Directions on how to use it are posted on the safe. A'ndrea P.S. I tend to agree with Neil. Leave the $5,000 Rolex at home. There's no need for it.
