What Are Banned Items on Holland America Cruises?

Cruise ship security is good on Holland America cruises. Guns and ammunition, fireworks, illegal drugs and fueled lighters in non-DOT-approved cases are forbidden per TSA regulations. Alcohol is not allowed onboard unless it's in the form of wine or champagne at the time of embarkation. You are limited to 2 bottles for each stateroom. Some adapters with multiple plugs or extension cords may be a problem. It's important to check with Holland America prior to your cruise about any items you are concerned might be banned. Non-dangerous items that are confiscated will usually be returned at the conclusion of the cruise.
