especially in places where divers frequent. Small folders won't be viewed as sports equipment, but may or may not
be legal at your destination depending on their laws. It may seem backwards and paradoxical, but
your diver's tool could be legal while your 3 inch folder might not be.
Contact the authorities at your destination, and contact the cruise company about their policies. I'd think that while
in port in the US they are governed by the knife laws of whatever city and state you are departing from.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.
Don't do it my friend. Get the walking stick (although t's possible to still get in trouble w/one on my island. Dang Brits)
Remember most of the carib. was settled by the British and although a great many are now independant the views on weapons remain.
Furthermore, because guns are illegal you will be facing things like machetes, cricket bats and the like. So a walking stick would be a lot more useful.

I took a cruise to the Bahama's and the Caribbean a couple of years ago and packed a cheaper SpiderCo blade for CC while out and about. The cruise line searched my checked luggage and confiscated the knife until return to original port in Florida. Security was very lax away from the ship, (read dangerous), but upon return you had to walk through metal detectors to re-board. The Bahama's was riddled with gang activity, drug sales, very shady with no police presence.
Watch each other's back and especially watch the women's drinks in your party as the locals will spike drinks in bars with roofies. One of the females I was traveling with was drugged and was sick for three days. The ship's Dr. stated that it was common place and she was lucky she made it back onboard. While I walked about freely my party decided not to leave the ship again after the incident.
