Default security concerns/carry on items

My question is what is being allowed on board post 9/11 as carry on? When we last cruised in august of 2001, a small swiss army knife (the one with tweezers and scissors) didn't raise an eyebrow. I'd like some guidence on this since I don't want to sour our trip or lose a much used tool but also do not want leave it home if it will pass thru ok. We are sailing Carnival in december.

Short answer: no. Also, no "pointy" articles of any kind: nail files (and nail clippers), any scissors including fold=up embroidery scissors, knitting needles. embroidery needles, and anything resembling a knife. (Only plastic knives are used as eating ustensils--if you are fortunate(?) enough to be served a meal in flight). Electric razors seem to be OK but not razors with blades, nor, of course, the blades. And, please, no box-cutters. I may have forgotten some items but surely someone else will remember. I last flew (SFO-SEA) two weeks ago and all of the above were still no-nos. Also SFO security would not let me take my Starbuck's Mocha Frappoccino through the hand baggage line!

I had my nail clippers taken in Orlando. Yet they went in my makeup bag through Providence no problem. I also observed very few big carryons. I was on Southwest and most carried backpack or tote. Southwest doesn't allow anything over 20in. I even had to check my son's car booster seat. In the past we just carried on.
Pack your swiss army knife in checked luggage.

Yeah I heard that Frappachino is really dangerous stuff.

I heard on the radio the other day that they have listed lawnmowers as NOT allowed on board. Imagine that!!! Heck we were thinking of mowing a couple acres on St Thomas on our next trip. Now what are we gonna do for fun??????????? Guess we'll have to got the beach or something awful like that.

The stuff in my wife's needlepoint sack caused them to soil themselves. What happens to the "confiscated" items? I assume it goes into their pockets.

Thanks to all for the input. However I was raising the question about screening at the ship and not at an airport. Flying is not a problem for me since I won't get on an airplane to go anywhere I need or want to go to. Thanks again!
