    Given news like this, then bring diarrhea medicine.

    For film, if you absolutely must use film: Fuji GS645 or similar.

    But I think you would do better with digital and a laptop (if you don't have room for a laptop, then some sort of portable storage device). Something like a mirrorless digital; small enough to fit in a pocket, decent enough lenses and quality, better than (most) P&Ss. Plus, if you don't get the absolute latest model, you won't be that put out if it gets stolen. Of course, for your first trip, you can just take a decent P&S and see what sort of photography you're able to do, and save this decision for the next trip. I'm amazed at the quality I'm able to get from a $200 P&S, and the versatility if you bother to take it off the green square setting.

    Whatever you get + other valuables, you could get a backpack where metal mesh is incorporated in the material...and you can tie it w/wire cord to unmovable bed post or the like. Even if someone has access to the room, they will not be able to cut-out the fabric to steal the items. Yes, a stolen camera might be a phys loss, but it also prevents you to have a passionate outlet, and not to mention loss of photo memories. I'd take a small laptop so you could at least see review the images + some sort of digi rig and 2-3 primes. Also couple of small external hard drives for a backup/copy and few (tested repeatedly) memory cards. If you'd do any video, you'd need more cards. I might consider, for special vistas, a 6x6 camera like Rollei or Yashi 124...if there is enough room.... or even 6x9 with couple of optics. Keeping the film cool might be an issue. It's bit confining of an island, at least to me, and the view doesn't change much, but since you'll be working....this could be somewhat tolerable. All I can say is bon voyage and occasionally think how much cashola you saved, being away from all the retail bs.

    Based on recent cruise ship events I'd be inclined to bring my private doctor along with a camera that is suitable for small spaces - like a bathroom.
