    Should I take my watches on a cruise?

    I was planning on taking 4 watches on my cruise this weekend (Rolex Explorer II, Omega SMP, Hamilton Jazzmaster, and Tudor Black Bay Red), but I have been reading and it's recommended not to take such expensive items. What should I do? As a true watch collector, I hate wearing one watch, but I might just have to stick with my Rolex... LOL. Any advice?

    I honestly would take an Omega Seamaster and Rolex Submariner. Both are dive watches, but both are perfect for cruises. The reason is that they are water resistant to great depths, and function as a sports and dress watch as well. If I were you I would take your Explorer II and SMP for the reason I stated.

    You're on a ship staffed with people from the poorest nations on earth who earn ~$160 a week and have unrestricted access to your cabin.

    Use common sense when traveling.

    I am might just take two then. I will keep the watch with me as I embark. The Rolex will stay on my wrist the whole time and my SMP will be tucked away.

    A watch that isn't a big deal if lost.

    I also have a Seiko Sumo that I might take take as well since it's not that expensive.

    I would only take one watch with me on a holiday. Two at most! Take extreme care when travelling.

    I would take the SMP or Black Bay and leave the rest at home.

    Most cabins have a safe for small items. If you do bring them I would take a photo of your watches in the safe as proof in case anything happens.
    I've been on numerous cruises and have never had an issue with anything I've brought on the ship... That being said I'd bring the Seiko for when you're in port(or buy a Gshock).

    Yeah. The cruise leaves from Long Beach in California and makes a stop in Ensenada, Mexico. It's a Carnival cruise.
