I've always put film in my carry-on baggage and never had a problem. The x-ray machines that look at checked baggage use a much stronger dose of x-rays. Carry your film on instead of putting it in your checked luggage.

If you're still concerned, you can hand the film/cameras to the security people and ask that they be hand-checked.

Here is some more information.

The Transportation Security Adminstration (TSA) Website says not to put film in checked baggage because the screening equipment will damage it. The TSA Website has a lot of good information for travelers. You might enjoy perusing it. Here's the URL: http://www.tsa.gov/public/interapp/e...orial_0077.xml

Happy Cruising!

Don't take chances with losing your cruise pictures to an X-ray machine. All of our first cruise pictures were lost by Sam's Club, and now I have very few memories of that week. Your vacation photos can be worth the extra effort to protect them. I understand that you can purchase X-ray protection bags for film also.
