One approach might be to use the plastic twist ties. Is not the idea just to prevent casual snooping / taking from your lugguge.
The intent person will cut regardless if serious in getting items from your lugguge
I'm sure those fingernail clippers will work just fine, but you can't even have them on any carry-on bags Heard from someone that just flew, they took her husbands nail clippers away, so that won't work either, but thanks for tht tip.
Wouldn't there be sissors, nail clippers (for sale) on board the ship? Or are we all going to have to forgo personal grooming to travel? I have heard even disposable shavers being taken away, I can't go a week w/o a lady bic! I guess the cruiselines will make good money sellng all these "forbidden" items now?
I was going to put my (toenail) clippers in an outside pocket of my checked in luggage as well packing our shaving razors in the check-in luggage. If perchance those are confiscated, then we planned on buying both at Ft. Lauderdale before going to the ship (heck of a lot cheaper than on board).
Actually I am not flying at all, I am driving to the port but I have no clue as to how strict they will be now with the new security measures in place, but I had thought of doing what CC said, putting them in an outside pocket of the checked luggage.
Nail clipper and files, razors, etc. must be packed in your checked baggage now as I understand it. As mentioned, just put your nail kit in an outside zippered compartment of your checked bags. Worst case scenario, if it is lost or confiscated, ask a cabin steward for assistance with a sharp instrument. Unfortuantely, the sundry shop on board your ship will not open until after you set sail, so you may not be able to unpack for a few hours if you depend on that.
We will all have to rethink our packing skills and entrust our possessions to the airlines primarily again.
We just returnmed from two cruises and we used cable ties on both while getting on and off. No problem and the ties were not broken. I am sure they use dogs and X-Rays and as there was nothing suspicious no problems. Now on carry-on's, don't seal them as you WILL have to open them for inspection in all liklihood.
