Do cruise ships allow guns onboard?

Last updated on September 22nd, 2023 at 08:26 pm

In many part of the United States, it’s common for gun owners to be allowed to carry a firearm in public, with some exceptions. However, cruise ships don’t fall under your State laws and they have rules of their own.

The answer is; No, cruise ships do not allow guns onboard. They are part of a “prohibited items” list that all ships have and encompass a wide range of items such as weapons, illegal drugs, fire hazards – generally anything that could cause an unsafe environment for guests and crew.

Items not allowed on a cruise are easy to find on a cruise line’s website, usually under a “pre-cruise” or “know before you go” heading for those who have already purchased a cruise.
