Default Prohibited items?

I just read somewhere that travel irons are prohibited. Glad I saw that, because it was on my packing list. Is there anywhere I can find a full list of prohibited items? I checked the Princess web site and the passage contract, but didn't see anything specific.

Beer and hard liquor are no-nos, and I have heard of sharp objects being removed, but I have never had any problems with the latter.
Sorry, I don't know of any list of prohibited objects.

Firearms, illegal drugs, irons (for ironing laundry), open flame items (candles), etc are prohibited items.

I decided to try to find that info on the princess website, but couldn't. Even did a search on "irons," "candles." Looked in the Passage Contract. I'm guessing the info is someplace.


But do add to your list: animals (unless they are service animals).

Passage contract, 1st paragraph in section 14 is a start. Cruise Answer Book page 9 last paragraph also.

But no comprehensive list.

There are a couple of ironing boards and irons in the laundermats.
No need to bring your travel iron.

Default Coffee Pot...

If I remember correctly, some cruise lines don't like you to have coffee pots in your room....

Here's a fairly comprehensive list from Royal Caribbean. Would it be appropriate to assume most of this with the exception of some types of alcohol are also prohibited on Princess?

"Weapons, illegal drugs, and other items that could interfere with the safe operation of the ship or the safe and secure environment of our guests and crew are prohibited. The following are examples of items that are not allowed on-board. These and other similar items will be confiscated upon being found.

Prohibited items:
  • Firearms & Ammunition, including realistic replicas.
  • Sharp Objects, including knives and scissors.(Note: Personal grooming items such as safety razors are allowed.)
  • Illegal Drugs & Substances
  • Candles & Incense
  • Coffee Makers, Clothes Irons, & Hot Plates
  • Baseball Bats, Hockey Sticks, Cricket Bats, Bows & Arrows
  • Illegal Drugs
  • Skateboards & Surfboards
  • Martial Arts Gear
  • Self-Defense Gear, including handcuffs, pepper spray, night sticks.
  • Flammable Liquids and Explosives, including lighter fluid and fireworks.
  • HAM Radios
  • Dangerous Chemicals, including bleach and paint.
  • Personal Alcohol"
