Since it's a 3 day cruise, we want to try to travel light, maybe just carry ons. I know the airline restrictions for carry on items as I fly frequently but can't find out if they are the same on cruise ships. Even if I can't fit everything and wind up checking a bag I still would like to put some toiletries in my carry on that I wouldn't want to leak (hair products and perfume over 3 ounces). Am I able to put these items in a carry on for the ship? Also, what about tweezers, eyelash curlers and razors? Usually I check these when I fly but would rather not if I don't have to (just my preference based on how I used to pack pre-9/11,). I know it may not be necessary or make sense to everyone, I'm just weird about my stuff and where I like to keep it, would take me an hour to explain my packing strategies and reasonings. I called Royal Carribean's help # to ask but the woman didn't seem to understand the question and just kept listing the restricted items list (I asked her about shampoo not fireworks for God sakes!) Does anyone know what the rules are for cruise carryons? Thanks!
Welcome, Meli! You can put almost anything in a carry on bag. The only things they might be looking for would be alcohol.

Talking to any "Help Desk" for a cruise, is pretty much a waste of time . Not only have they never cruised, but the only thing they can "quote" to you is the same stuff you can see for yourself online .
