‘Target for thieves’: Cruise passengers share the items guests should leave at home


Another said: “In port, I would be wary of wearing a fancy watch, gold chains, rings or flaunting wads of cash when wandering around the ports of most countries.

“You just become a target for thieves and muggers. I always cringe at the loud and obvious tourist with a Rolex watch, flashing around a large wad of cash.

“In port, dress down. Carry minimal cash and don’t call attention to yourself. Take a cheap camera with you and avoid having your camera out all the time.”

While the cruise cabin is likely to be a safe place to leave valuables, some guests thought it wasn’t worth the risk.
