What not to bring on board

What not to bring onboard:
Please remember that you must pass through port security, which is a division of homeland security, to

board the ship. So, here are some tips:

Do make sure you understand the TSA regulations for carry-on items if you fly. Go to TSA.Gov and click on the tab marked Travelers. Liquids are subject to the 3-1-1 for carry-ons = 3 ounce bottle or less; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3 oz. container size is a security measure.

Don't pack medicines or valuables in your luggage. This applies both to airline check-in and cruise ship check-in. Take a small carry-on bag on the ship with these items and anything else you may need for the first afternoon on the ship. Your luggage may not arrive in your stateroom until 6:00 PM or later. It is a good idea to include a change of clothing if you have an early dinner seating.
NO Metal or Spiked floggers, real or police issue handcuffs, contraband of anytype (even if unused), pocket knives, alcohol, metal swords/dagger props, cane swords, fake guns (not even plastic colored water guns. Do not try to bring these onboard. They will take them from you and not give them back. These items will be destroyed.

If you wear padlocked jewelry or collars, take off the padlocks and put them into your checked baggage.

Armor Rings and spiked jewelry or spiked boots - Each individual security officer is different. I have seen some of you get through with these, and some of you have had them confiscated. Put them in your checked baggage. Don’t try to wear them through the port security. It just makes them frustrated.

Fetish Items. Many of us have fetish items. I suggest everyone pack these in their checked baggage if you really want to bring them. Keep in mind that port security does random bag checks and all bags now go through XRay. Do not put them in your carryon bag, unless you want to be embarrassed at check in/security screening.

Make sure your boots don’t have screws on the bottom that can scratch or gouge the deck. Make sure they are tightly screwed up into the soles.

Insure any chains on your clothes are within reason, not so long as they catch on other people or furniture. Tuck your chains into your pockets when walking on the open decks if the winds are strong.
