your better off flying. Or live near the port and scan the system there.

Have been on 11 Disney cruises since 2005, with embarkations in Port Canaveral, LA, San Juan, Venice, Barcelona. I have had a scanner with me every time and have never had one taken from me. Most were with an Icom R3, while the last few have been with an HP1.

I also took one on board the NCL Breakaway last year in NYC.

I don't seem to have any issues getting one in MSG either for NYR hockey games.

One of the more interesting things I heard was at a concert..... All the wireless feeds and the drummer's own click track were all able to be heard..

Which RC cruise? Which ship? I planned to take my BCD396XT next year. Decided not to risk my BCD436HP. The ship will be close to the New England coastline so I wanted to monitor VHF marine and the P25 USCG channels and the port comms. I thought I might pack it in my luggage instead of my carry on bag. Or, carry it on with literature showing it isn't a HAM radio.

if you do end up taking a scanner, take the cheapest one you can.

Just came back from a Norweigen Gem cruise. Did not take my 436 because I did not want to chance losing it or having it stolen. I did stick my Airspy mini in my laptop bag and enjoyed everything I was able to receive.

The rules don't apply to you. Take 'em all with you. I'm sure there are some Disney cruise employees who will have fun with 'em.
