Can you bring a skateboard on a Carnival Cruise Line?
Are there any regulations to this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please only respond if you only have a definite answer. October 22nd, 2012 01:46 AM

No regulations that says you can't. Obviously, you can't use it on the ship, but no reason why you can't bring it to use it in port.

Excerpt from Carnival's list of restricted items which are allowed aboard but only for in-port use:

"Items for In Port Use only: Snorkel gear, skateboards, golf clubs, fishing rods (packed), tennis rackets, kites (packed), roller blades/skates, metal detectors, Boogie Boards (no more than 42 Inches in length and stored in stateroom)."

You could have some trouble traveling with your skate board, especially if you are flying in?

Packed in your luggage, I wouldn't think there would be an issue..What ports are you going to? In the Carribean,many streets are made of ballast and cobblestones, with very high curbs. Unless you are doing a rural excursion, where there is a possibility of using it there, sans crowds... this may not be possible for you to enjoy as you might think.

Not sure. Im not a kid with a skateboard. I am a sponsored athelete in the sport of professional skateboarding, and I have multiple skateboard decks that I bring with me on tour. Just wanted to see if there was any cargo issues with that so i can notify my team mananger in case they have to mail me my boards/ cargo.

Another note from Carnival's restrictions:

"Guests are encouraged to limit their checked luggage to two suitcases per person, with each suitcase not to weigh more than 50 pounds and not exceed 16"H x 24"W (no length restrictions)."

Think i must of posted on the wrong post, but yeah i don't see why you can't take one on-board, you might not be able to use it on-board but you'll be bale to to take it off the ship if you decide to go into one of the ports. Find a nice set of stairs to session or something..
