  1. I truly hope this is definitive https://www.marijuana.com/news/2016/10/can-you-bring-marijuana-on-a-cruise-ship/ “Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. follows the (U.S.) Federal Law regardless of each state/countries’ recreational marijuana laws. Per Federal Law, Medical Marijuana is still considered illegal.” If thats not final enough.... Im not sure what will be
  2. please provide documentation that ferries go into international waters https://www.straight.com/news/632216/bc-ferries-evacuation-systems-come-under-fire But if you thought B.C. Ferries vessels would be bound by SOLAS, you’d be wrong. Because B.C. Ferries doesn’t operate in international waters, its ships are not required by Transport Canada to be SOLAS-compliant. Only the Greek-built MV Northern Adventure on B.C.’s north coast is SOLAS-compliant.
  3. Im sorry but it seems pretty simple to me.
  4. of course you can... ferries are owned and operated by Canada and can have modified laws. Royal Caribbean is NOT owned and solely operated by Canada so it CAN and most likely do have exceptions.
  5. Canadian controlled ferries that might have government agreements maybe?
  6. if you go into international waters (more than 12 miles out I believe)... its leaving the country... plain and simple. It doesnt matter at all where your destination is. if someone rapes another person and is in international waters (I dont care if its 1 mile into international waters) and they are going back to the same country... YOU ARE STILL IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS and the International waters laws apply. You are confusing international borders with the starting port and the next port... Ports make NO difference
  7. WHAT???? Its clear that what? What it is very clear is, is that if you step 1 foot into international waters, its illegal. YOU are now twisting a very simple, logical , straight forward law to try to meet your needs. If you cross the international border, its illegal... end... stop... no other words needed here. At this point , this is as clear as it can be and you are not adding your own words (temporary?????) to fit your narrative. this is in writing... clear, concise and definitive. do what you want at this point but this answers your question in writing Good luck
  8. Wow... you are not going to see the ridiculously obvious , are you? if you take one step over international borders... YOU HAVE CROSSED THE BORDER. It doesnt matter what the next port is. the rules are pretty cut and dry and now you are trying to muddy them if you leave into international waters... its illegal. If you come back into the country from international waters... its illegal there is no temporary.. or where you are returning to. Its straight and matter of fact and one step out into international waters makes it illegal according to Canada. Its in their documentations and if you read it exactly as written.. its illegal
  9. I dont think you understand what the Canada law states. It states you can NOT leave the borders of Canada with Cannabis or come in from international waters. Since the Cruise WILL go into international waters, you will be crossing in and out of Canada each time even though you are going back into Canada each time. Taking cannabis or any product containing cannabis across Canada’s international borders is illegal and can result in serious criminal penalties both at home and abroad. The ship WILL be crossing international borders each time to open the casinos This is as cut and dry as it can be.
  10. so I'm curious you dont want to break any Royal Caribbean rules and that means you will be smoking it ONLY in the designated area which are outside on deck... If you dont get any definitive answer, are you going to smoke on deck?
  11. While not Royal Caribbean policy... It is illegal to take Cannabis out of Canada. so any other Royal Caribbean rules or laws are moot https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/cannabis-and-international-travel Leaving Canada The legalization of cannabis in Canada did not change Canada’s border rules. Taking cannabis or any product containing cannabis across Canada’s international borders is illegal and can result in serious criminal penalties both at home and abroad.
  12. Im sure someone will find the proper policy but as you can see from this link, you CAN be arrested once you are away from Canada (like in Bermuda) https://www.foxnews.com/travel/royal-caribbean-passenger-arrested-fined-4000-for-marijuana-possession
  13. keep an eye on the prices if you are interested. I got mine at 349 so there is a chance it will go down (not waterpark cabana)
  14. 2 things about this first... RCL does not require a letter from the one parent that is not going. that could be father OR MOTHER second - the problem might not be with Royal Caribbean. it could be with CBT This is what CBT recommends If a child (under the age of 18) is traveling with only one parent or someone who is not a parent or legal guardian, what paperwork should the adult have to indicate permission or legal authority to have that child in their care? U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) strongly recommends that unless the child is accompanied by both parents, the adult have a note from the child's other parent (or, in the case of a child traveling with grandparents, uncles or aunts, sisters or brothers, friends, or in groups*, a note signed by both parents) stating "I acknowledge that my wife/husband/etc. is traveling out of the country with my son/daughter/group. He/She/They has/have my permission." See our Q&A parental consent.
  15. Directly from Royal What family legal documents do I need to board a Royal Caribbean cruise ship? A Should the last names of the parent and minor child traveling with them differ, the parent is required to present the child's valid passport and visa (if required) and the child's birth certificate (original, a notarized copy or a certified copy). The name of the parent(s) and the child must be linked through legal documentation. Adults who are not the parent or Legal Guardian of any minor child traveling with them are required to present the child's valid passport and visa or the child's birth certificate (original, a notarized copy or a certified copy) and an original notarized letter signed by at least one of the child's parents. The notarized letter from the child's parent must authorize the traveling adult to take the child on the specific cruise, must authorize guardian to sign legal documentation/waivers for participation in any activities requiring them (i.e. Rock Climbing, Flowrider, Bungee Trampoline, Inline Skating, or Ice Skating) and must authorize the traveling adult to supervise the child and permit any medical treatment that must be administered to the child. If a non-parent adult is a Legal Guardian, the adult must present a certified certificate of Guardianship with respect to the child.
