What's a dangerous knife? Mine have never lost control.

Why should I expect to stay in jail? From what has been posted regarding the regular transport of "dive knives" on and off of cruise ships and what I have seen of the actual law you can probably carry the kind of knife I had in mind (smaller locking blade folder) without too much trouble. What I am having trouble with is the legal definition of "dangerous" so I will probably just leave my Leatherman Micra on the boat.

Divers tend to refer to the knives as "diving tools" and they get seen as sports equipment by the powers that 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 have always been like that. I run into a problem and look around to see what I can use to solve the problem. When I drive on the highway I like to drive in the left lane to see what I can find. One day I was drive down the highway left lane on shoulder, i found a open padlock so I picked it up. Family asks what are you going to do with a lock without a key.

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.
