    I carry my little VX-3 Yaesu, I listen to the Marine channels some etc. The Captain has always been very good about allowing my little operation.

    pretty sure my wife would toss me and my gear overboard if I were to lug it along with me on a cruise :)

    I had a VIP cabin on a Carnival cruise a few years back. They checked my baggage separately, and it did go through an x-ray machine, but it didn't really look like anyone was paying attention. We had a dozen plastic flasks filled with a variety of libations. No problem. ;)

    Disney allows 2 bottles of wine per person - I always bottle my own "wine" when we go . . .

    Yeah, good luck with that one. The master of the vessel has final say in anything, regardless of corporate policy.

    True, but the Master isn't likely to be the one checking your carry-ons.

    If you are serious about operating on the water, consider:
    You can operate anything you want, HF, VHF, UHF, Sat, etc; and the XYL can get rid of the tan lines. Best part, is you can (and should) bring aboard as much liquid courage as you desire.

    I think they would use cell phones more than radios

    i was on the jan 2017 ham radio carnival cruise. that was special permission arranged by deb and we followed all rules. did a short video at youtube.
    saying a cruise is no place for ham radio is like saying don't waste your time scuba diving in those Caribbean waters.
