Preventing Theft, Here's a Possibility

Ok, so we've read about the girl that had some personal property stolen.

We've also read and heard about other thefts from cabins.  These stories seem to be on the rise.

I looked into the possibility of buying a clock with a camera hidden in it, but I wasn't sure about them.  I wanted one with an SD card.    Then I checked my App Store.    I downloaded one called  MD Spycam. It's on my I-pad, and, by virtue of the cloud, my wife's I-Pod.   I am thinking of using that on my upcoming cruise in October. 

Has anyone used one of these apps ?   What are your thoughts ?

I answered the post about the cruiser who had items stolen from their stateroom. I believe they were somewhat unprepared for the cruise experience. Great things happen on a cruise, but also like in any event where that many people are gathered, some bad will happen. I have been on 4 cruises and have never had anything taken, but I make sure the temptation is removed as well. We do not leave things out that can disappear. We utilize the safe at all times and we have also bought jewellery and have brought the items to the purser-----just in case. Nothing can prepare for the occasional theft. It could be a watch, ring, souvenir or something that catches some ones eye. All the screening in the world will not prevent an employee or passenger from picking up something and walking away. But in answer to BAK---make sure someone doesn't steal the clock.....

that would really be ironic.....

I often wonder if people post about thefts to bolster an insurance claim ( possible fraud?). One woman on another site stated her jewelry was tucked way down inside her luggage, wrapped in paper, which was then placed in the closet. When she went to get it, it was gone. Blamed the steward, blamed the cruise line......the whole story seemed fishy from the get go.

I have been on many cruises and never had anything missing ,keep things out of sight and use the safe
