Cruise ship security does not allow ham radios on Carnival ships. The radios interfere with the ships' radio frequencies and can cause a legitimate safety hazard in the event of an emergency. They also interfere with the ship's everyday communications with other vessels and port authorities. Operating a ham radio without the appropriate permission in a foreign country can also cause a problem. Personal AM/FM radios and boomboxes, however, are allowed. Guests using these radios in public areas must use them with headphones so other guests on the ship aren't disturbed.
