June 18. Now, major lines such as Royal Caribbean, Carnival and even Disney Cruise Line have clarified their stance on cannabis and CBD.
Simply put, if you sail from a United States port you must follow U.S. federal law. And right now, while there are many states that allow the possession of certain amounts of marijuana, there is no such federal law. And to help curb violence, many cruise lines are cracking down on a variety of things.
Carnival Cruise Line, like many cruise lines, has a written policy.
«While certain CBD products used for medicinal purposes may be legal in the US, they are not legal in all the ports we visit and therefore are also considered prohibited items. Guests will need to consult with their physician for other suitable alternatives.»
Meanwhile, Norwegian Cruise Line lists marijuana as a prohibited item.
«All illegal narcotics/drugs, including marijuana prescribed for medical purposes and other items used as drug paraphernalia. This includes all products containing CBD, oils, candies, and gummies or any product containing THC.»
Disney Cruise Line takes a similar approach.
