I keep a pair of scissors in my toiletry bag, and have never had a probolem on a cruise. I did have them taken away from me when I forgot to put them in my checked baggage on a flight.

As long as they aren't in your carryon baggage with the airlines, you shouldn't have a problem.

Do not carry them on. My wife had a sewing kit that she had forgotten about in her purse in one of those hidden pockets. The security guy took about 10 minutes between scanning and searching for them. Then he confiscated the scissors, blunt nose and about one and a half inches long. We had planned on using those scissors that we didn't know about. {{grin}} Hey, he didn't confiscate the needles though. Very alert security.
