    I'm guessing I'll want to bring my camera to CC. What if I want to go swimming with DS? How do I know no one will steal my camera? Are there lockers? I'm not too worried about leaving a beach bag with towels and sunscreen. Should I just not bring the camera? Or get a disposable one to lessen the risk?

    No lockers. We use our phones as our cameras and have left them when we take a dip in our bags. Nothing else really of value that we take. I'd be more worried about some fancy camera getting damaged then getting stolen but of voices it is possible.

    There are no lockers at CC. We bring a disposable, waterproof camera (bought at WalMart) since we usually go in the water for snorkeling.

    When we have been on the family beach we just cover things up or put them in the beach bag we brought. Since the island is private no shady vendors are about. The only concern is other guests but to be honest most people are busy doing their own thing that unless people are targeting you it really isn't a worry. Nikon camera is really the only expensive thing we bring, since we leave all cash and passports on the ship.

    This looks great! :goodvibes I have to have one. I travel alone now and with only one set of eyes I have been uneasy at times. I would like to think that anyone paying thousands for a cruise wouldn't be so cheap as to steal someing but it only takes one. Better safe than sorry.

    I did have a new towel stolen at Blizzard Beach. It was a cheap one I'd bought on sale at k-mart. However it was the last one and I loved the design. (Colorful jewel tone butterflies on a black background.) At any rate it did spoil my day and left me feeling not so safe at BB. This is a different situation than CC. For a few bucks anyone can get into BB.
    PS: :wave2: Any one looking for a cabinmate? :beach:

    There are reports of items getting stolen at Castaway Cay. Link.

    Don't leave valuables unattended.

    We've never worried about our stuff at CC. We do keep an eye on it from the water but we really don't stress about it. I'm sure somebody has had something stollen there but I doubt it happens much.

    I apologize for posting this here, but I've spent over an hour trying to find out how to change my picture (I'm a solo sailor now) or just omit it? I have a picture on facebook. Is there any way I can use that? Can anyone direct me to the correct thread?

    Please help.

    Click on UserCP on the blue bar up above (to the left of chat). From there, select Signature and you can delete it from there.

    I bought a Kyss bag last year and I absolutely love it!! I brought it on our cruise on the Fantasy last October and used it on every excursion and at Castaway Cay.

    I'm not sure I want to spend $45 on another bag when I love my beach bag... I guess I have to do some serious thinking. I'm from California and I leave my beach bag on the beach all the time and have never had a problem... Guess I have been lucky and it makes me sad that this would happen.

    At first I thought I would just bring a zip tie and attach it to my bag and the chair leg but my bag doesn't have a zipper so that won't deter someone from taking my camera out of the bag...another thing to really think about before my cruise

    I have worried about this too. I think I will probably leave the Nikon in the cabin and take the pretty good Kodak all-in-one digital to CC - It took great pictures before I got the Nikon DSLR (took a Nikon - film SLR on our first cruise!!) I usually put what valuables I have in a random looking - not fancy bag with a detachable handle - put it under the beach chair and wind the handle all around the chair's support in a crazy tangle, then put a towel over it. It would take a lot of effort to get at.

    OH - I just remembered I do plan to get a Olympus Tough water proof camera before our next cruise so it can go into the water with us - I forgot!:blush:

    I've used a waterproof Olympus Tough while snorkeling at Castaway Cay and am pleased with the results.
