We are sailing this Sunday on Rhapsody. My son has a 5"-6" knife (closed) that he always carries with him -- to him it is his "pocket-knife". Will it arrive in our room if he puts it in his luggage that they check? In his carry-on bag?

Something like that needs to be in checked luggage, if brought at all. I assume you are talking about a Buck knife or something similar. Something like that is sure to get you some extra attention by security at the pier if it is in a carry on bag. I'd strongly urge him to leave the "pocket knife" home this time. There really isn't any need for it aboard a ship and carrying it in some of the ports of call could land him in serious trouble.

Leave it home!! I just got a phone call from our first time cruiser friends. Wife was called to purser and then excorted OFF ship to inspect her luggage. Seems her husband had put a lg pair of scissors in there at the last minute. ( this was checked in luggage at airport) they thought it was a knife and said they would have to take scissors anyway, would get it at end of cruise. She was SO embarrased and I'm sure her husband is paying for the embarrassment NOW!

Hi Mike,
can you explain, why your son needs his knife on a cruise????? He will have other things to play with on your cruise.
Security will confiscate it, I am sure.
Make him an other present, maybe a pocket game.

There is also the question of airline security - it'll never get past in his pocket or his carry-on.

I have a 2" swiss combo/knife/sissors/nail file that was confiscated - it's on my keyring and I forgot about it. It cost me $15 to ship it back to myself (more than it's worth but for the sentimental value).

Don't know for sure, but TSA might also question it if they see it as it passes the scanners for checked luggage.
