Default knife collector

Hey all, I would like to buy collectors knives for my dad while in the Grand Cayman and Cozumel and possibly Ocho Rios. Does anyone know if I would be able to purchase these and bring them back on the ship? Or would they be confiscated? Thanks for any advice.

Buy them and ship them home before you sail and you will not have to worry about it.

On the bottom front of Carnival Capers for the Miracle it stated souvenir weapons such as knives, swords and spears are strictly prohibited -per the Captain. I assume this applies to all ships.

My husband collects swords and knives too. When we were in New Orleans before our last cruise, we found a shop that had LOTS of nice pieces. We bought a couple of them. The people were nice enough to ship them to our house for us.

In Grand Cayman we just took one right to the post office down town and mailed it ourselves.

My son found a few in Iraq but there's no way of getting those out here!
