Ok- I've read plenty of airport stories, are there any cruise stories?? We are booking a cruise for Nov 2013 out of Galveston to Cozumel.
 

Contact the Cruise line, But I would bet dollars to donuts that you will not be allowed to take a weapon on the ship and definitely not off the boat in Cozumel.

The Cruise I took from Seattle to Alaska along the inside passage had metal detectors getting on and off and has the same rules as the airport. "knives and such".
 
When I checked into it with carnival I was told they don't allow it. They also X-ray luggage brought onboard. I know someone that had a picket knife in his luggage and they found it.
 
No weapons - your luggage is scanned and you pass through metal detectors and patdown and/or wanding.
 
No weapons as stated earlier. Plus you're in International waters and your CCW has no meaning and you're ending in a foreign nation.
 
According to Uncle Sam my hands and feet are registered as deadly weapons....guess I'll have to sneak those on board. Leaving the pistol in a gun safe in the car will have to do. I'm going to feel naked w/o my knife though.

Oh bull****

Registering a firearm is illegal (at the federal level) in this country no one is making people register their hands and feet.

Why do people keep perpetuating this monkey poop? It doesn't make you look like a bad ass it makes you look like a mall ninja

Knives are not weapons they are tools. I would feel lost without my knives. Is it the same for all ships? Now I don't know if I want to take a cruise.
 
US Army states otherwise. , maybe not "registered" but on file.

No it doesn't

I studied various forms of martial arts through out my entire military career and as long as it didn't interfere with my duties my chain of command couldn't have cared less. If anything they were pleased that my practice of martial arts increased my overall fitness level.

I want to know exactly which DA form one fills out to put their "hands and feet" on file as lethal weapons.

There is no law, rule, regulation, or statute that requires anybody to register any part of their body as a lethal weapon. Even if there were it would be pointless because there is no procedure. And what would be the point? So we can track the movements of your hands?

The rules are different depending on the cruise line - typically, no knives with blade length longer than 3 or 4 inches. Dive knives can be taken aboard but they are held for you (somewhere on the ship - I don't dive, so...). Also, take a knife ashore with you at certain ports of call and you will either lose the knife to the authorities or possibly ruin your trip by spending time in a prison (I hear the Jamaican prisons are exceptionally nice...). All cruise lines have lists of 'prohibited' items to take on board and what can and cannot be brought back through customs - ask them. It is usually in a part of their website.

I second the bull&^it comment. I never had my hands or feet put on file or any other garbage while on active duty, but there was one idiot in basic training who was spouting off the same bs. I learned more about hand to hand combat in 1 week of Muy Thai training than my entire 4 year military service.
