Hi JDFam, welcome to Cruise-Chat. Congratulations on your upcoming cruise
I don't even want to bring mine on vacation, but my hubby insists. We've left it out on the dresser and have put it in a drawer. We've never had any problems. Ours is an inexpensive Dell, so it wouldn't be a huge loss. Just has some of our pictures on it, but I usually have them burn me a CD, so nothing critical would be lost. If you have any type of information you cannot afford to lose, either make sure you have it backed up to an external drive, CD, or jump drive or don't take it. Although none of us have never had any problems, there's always a first time. When we put it up, we normally just put it in the closet or the dresser drawer. Best wishes for a fantastic cruise!
