This may make it seem like the cruise ship industry has a problem, but the reality is that they do not. Cruise ship accidents are really few and far  between.

Despite the fact that you are safe aboard a cruise ship, you should still take precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your belongings for safe travel on the seas.

There are a number of steps that you can take for shipboard safety. Most of these precautions are simple and can be done with little or no effort, keeping you safe and your finances in check when you are on your cruise.

Cruise ship safety precautions should begin well in advance of boarding ship. Your travels may take you to foreign countries. In the event of a mistake or disaster, you are encouraged to have all of your important documents on hand. These should include your passport and driverís license.

Before boarding your cruise ship, make duplicate copies of all of these documents. In addition to the originals, carry one set with you and leave the other at home.

When you are finally board, familiarize yourself with your ship. Todayís most popular cruise ships are large in size. It may take some time to examine the ship, but that exploration can be a big part of the fun. Request a map and carry it with you at all times, it may come in handy if you lose your way.

Be observant and familiarize yourself with other passengers. You don't have to be outgoing or a social butterfly to accomplish this. Simply keep an eye out for individuals that appear to be shady or mysterious. If you were on land, it's likely that you would avoid individuals that make you feel uncomfortable. The same should apply for increased onboard safety when on your cruise ship.

When walking around your cruise ship, it's usually a good idea not to travel alone. As with land, traveling with others is likely to reduce or eliminate your chances of becoming a crime victim. If you must move around the ship alone, inform a number of individuals where you will be headed and when you expect to return. In the event that something does happen, a relative or friend should know exactly where to find you.

Make your personal safety your first concern. In addition to personal safety, the safety of your belongings is also important. If you are traveling with expensive luggage or large sums of money, consider taking extra precautions like leaving your most expensive belongings behind. Most cruise ships will not reimburse their passengers for lost money or belongings.

When it comes to theft, cash and credit cards are often the most sought after items. Instead of carrying a purse or a wallet,  carry a money pouch. To offer the utmost protection, obtain a money pouch that can be worn around your neck and tucked into your shirt. Others can be worn inside of your underwear. These pouches often make it impossible for thieves to strike.

If you prefer not to use a money pouch or if you left yours at home, divide up your money. Keeping your money in multiple locations may provide you with financial protection if a theft does occur. If you must use a purse, keep it with you at all times. Women and men with wallets should keep their wallets in their front pockets.

Cruise ships are exciting and, for the most part, safe. With a few simple precautions, you can safely enjoy your vacation aboard a cruise ship without fretting over the safety of yourself and your belongings.
