Get a good housing and it should be pretty safe from leaking.
Funny thing however is, I left the cruiseship (docked in St. Thaomas)at the last minute to get on the boat (Leylon Sneed) to go to St. John. The cruise ship has really cool A/C. And outside it was really warm and humid. So, as soon as I turned on my digital camera, the lens would fog-up; even if the camera was inside the underwater case. So, during my trip to St. John, I would have to quickly turn on the camera and snap a shot of something nice on shore quickly before the camera lens fogged. Eventually, the camera warmed-up to the outside temperature and lens stopped fogging. Keep this in mind when you bring your camera outside after a night inside your cabin onboard the ship.
If you are using a housing get some moisture munchers to put in the case. They can be found at places like B&H Photo, or any place that sells the housings. Also some anti-fog stuff on the lens port of the housing helps.
Larry, my husband practically lives at B&H. He buys all of his gear and equipment from them. He walks in and they know him by name. But, never open on Saturdays for the Sabbath! He knows exactly what you're referring to. I should have known.
