Hi, what do people do with their valuables, wallet, money etc. when they are swimming or snorkling?

Your best bet is to take only what you need off the ship with you: your ship card, photo ID, a little cash (however much you need - depends on if you will need taxi fare, plan to eat on shore, etc.), and a credit card. Those will all fit in a small hip pack or a money pack you can wear under your clothes. You can use a ziploc bag to keep things dry and just wear the pack while snorkeling or swimming & enjoying the beach. Everything else you can leave onboard - in many cases your cabin will have a small safe that can fit wallets, tickets and other small valuables. If not, the purser's office usually has safe deposit boxes for passenger use.

We purchased petzl chaulk holders that climbers use and then put velcro watch bands through them. They are nylon with velcro tri fold closures and work excellent as they are just the right size for drivers license and ship id and a little money. No problem getting wet and wet money spends the same. :0). If you want to know more, just ask, hope this helps. All else we leave in our room safe.

There's also watertight plastic container that you can put around your neck. Our travel agency gives them out as gifts. They're large enough to put a passport in, credit card, and cash. I've also seen them sold at snorkeling gear or travel accessories, depending on what store you're in. They are really good, and string can tighten up. Hope this gives you an idea, as I love mine.
