This kind of freaks me out. Not only the idea that anyone going by in the hall could take it but that they can also just walk up and take it once off the ship.A friend of mind was so paranoid that a PAX would steal his luggage in the middle of the night after he put them outside his cabin, that before he went to bed tied fishline from his luggage to his big toe. When he felt a tug on his toe, it would wake him up. get out of bed, and go outside his cabin to be sure it was crew staff taking his luggage, and not some thieving PAX stealing his luggage. He does that routine on every cruise.
We did this once on our first cruise and we could have taken any bag we wanted in the terminal without anyone stopping us.
It also means that our baggage has been out of our control between packing it and presenting it at airport security.
We have always self disembarked since (and only ever have one bag each) and always been early getting off.
Cruise in July out of FLL and don’t need to be off early as our flight is not until 3:00....is there later self disembark?
Maybe try that, if it will relieve your anxiety.
Good luck, and enjoy your cruise.
