A scanner is nothing more than a wide range radio receiver. They are
permitted anywhere radios are permitted.

Take a look at this web site. It's very interesting reading.

I took an Alaska Cruise with Holland America after 9/11/ I had no problems
using getting a briefcase full of gear on board, using scanner, etc. Since it
was an Alaska cruise most of traffic was Marine band and city stuff while in
port.

Hope you enjoyed the cruise. Wish I had gotten a scanner when I did the same
trip along the central coast aboard BC Ferries from Port Hardy to Prince
Rupert in 2001.

Had a BC245XLT scanner when I went over to Vancouver Island. Gives a
different prespective on things when you're doing part of living in
southwestern British Columbia. Being in a ferry line up.

Vancouver city police and most of the fire activty is Pro-Voice so that
activity won't be available on a scanner, but there's
lots of marine traffic, plus BC Ferries, and YVR (Vancouver International
Airport) and CFB Comox. S

A cheap way to do the same cruise is to drive aboard the Alaska Marine
Highway ferry at Bellingham Washington for
the trip to Alaska. No fancy casinos or any of the traditional cruise ship
junk.

Be sure to come back for another cruise when you can.

One thing to note: if you are on a cruise which will take you to other
countries (unlike the cruises up in Alaska), you may want to check first
before you take your scanner OFF the ship at any of the stops along the
way. Some countries are a little picky about that sort of thing....
