Thats exactly why one of my Girlfriends went with the new safer silicon implants. I must say they feel much softer.

I have had to walk thru metal detectors on all 7 of my cruises getting back on board

Dave, When I originally check-in and go thru the screening I have to remove my military belt because it sets if off. I always wear a decent size diver's watch that has to be removed, along with change and lighter.

When I reboard I have never had to remove any of those items. Hence I didn't know I was walking thru one. Or after a few Bushwhackers I did not recall. I just remember id and S&S, put S&S in slot and it goes ding. Then put bags in the x-ray.

It must be like you said with lenient settings. There sure isn't a backed up line with people removing items to go thru it.

Thanks, after I posted that, I started thinking it would be a little worrisome to think someone could conceal a weapon or something. Thanks as well to Jim.

The issue is that my husband had a double hip replacement, and I'm thinking that with the varied age of cruisers that particular issue must come up quite often (though my husband is only 46). There must be many passengers with hip replacements, pacemakers, etc, so they must have a quick and easy way to get everyone back on board.

He only gets grumpy when he's singled out and given a very thorough pat down in front of everyone, sometimes for longer than 15 minutes. Although we understand the reasoning behind this he still feels like a criminal and gets very grumpy... and feels a little down too. I think I will just not mention it until we see what happens, and then I'll just make sure he finishes alllll his margaritas before reboarding the ship.

I really do appreciate all the information you all gave me!

I am so wrong. With Dave's explanation and a slap up side the head from Wifey! Yes we like it that way. She says we do walk thru them! They just don't go off like the other ones.

Cynthia,
My mother-in-law has a defibulator(pacemaker). When she travels, she carries a notarized letter from her physician and a gov't. issued card, which she displays to security. She is excluded from the metal detectors because it may interfere with her defib. circuit. They do wand her.

My mother has a hip replacement and she also carries a notarized letter from her doctor, as well as, a gov't issued card. Although, she still has to go through the metal detector, only because her replacement doesn't require special electronic attention, such as a defib.

The ships typically use lightweight units such as this one.
