Hi All,


My wife and I are planning a cruise to the Caribbean this winter.  I was
looking at Carnival since some of you have posted about using radios for
satellite contacts while on board.  As I was reading the "Carnival
Corporation Prohibited Items
<https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4090> " list I found this
line; "Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB), ham radios,
satellite phones, transformers, lasers and laser pointers".  With all the
heightened security these days I figured they had decided to add ham gear to
their list.  As I was reading the "Exemptions and Other Considerations
<https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2261> " list I came
across this line "Ham Radios/Amateur Radio Equipment: Permitted to be used
on board".   At the bottom of the page was "Was this answer helpful Yes/NO",
I clicked on "No" and a box popped up asking for an explanation. I pointed
out what I found and asked which line is correct.  I will post their answer
when I get it.
