  1. Use Tags

Everyone knows that you should use tags on your luggage while traveling to help find your bags if they become lost.

You should only put your name, email, and phone number on your tag. Additional information, such as your home address, is not necessary. When you put your tag on your bag, you should also take a picture of it. A picture can help in the recovery process if employees can easily identify it and know what to look for.

 

  1. Bring a Small Safe

If you are going on a cruise and can’t leave expensive items at home, you should consider getting a small safe.

A safe will give you space in your cabin you put your belongings and make sure that no one can get to them. Being on a cruise can increase the risk of theft. The majority of your time on the cruise will be spent outside of your room, making your belongings in it more vulnerable.

You should get a small lockbox or safe to hold your passport when you aren’t using it and any money or jewelry you brought.

 

  1. Pack Smart

Going on a cruise will require you to pack smart to avoid losing any belongings.

You may want to reconsider packing your collection of women’s Balenciaga sneakers on your trip. But having too many belongings can make it difficult to notice when things go missing, plus there are more items that can disappear!

Try to use as few bags as possible to avoid disaster and confusion. The more luggage you have, the longer it will take to get around and travel.

 

  1. Limit Cash

While on a cruise, you should limit the cash that you bring.

Some people bring extra cash in case of emergencies. This can also come in handy if your bank has a habit of detecting fraud and stopping your cards from being used.

Unfortunately, the more cash you have, the more possible it is to go missing. Most cruises are all-inclusive, so they shouldn’t require you to carry constant cash.

It is best to rely on credit cards on your cruise. Just be sure to give the bank a call and let them know that you will be out of the country.
