If you would happen to find one with a guest , I would NOT bring on the ship. I did that in Florida about 30 years ago. Found one with the Snail or Guest inside of it. Put in the trunk. Drove back to Illinois. About Atlanta the Smell was unbearable. The conch shell ened up in a rest stop garbage can.
On our cruise in December I had no problem bringing mine onto Amsterdam. It was definitely an old one though and I did nothing to hide it. I also had no problem with customs.
hmm, that's weird. We were on the Nieuw Amsterdam and they would not let you bring them back on the ship. You would think that all Holland America ships would have the same policy?

"old crusty", store sovenier vs. new from sea? Does Holland passenger recall of saw any old bone looking type? Just wondering. We sail Carnival in March 2013 there.

hmm, that's weird. We were on the Nieuw Amsterdam and they would not let you bring them back on the ship. You would think that all Holland America ships would have the same policy?Not weird to me. I have found a big difference between policy and enforcement. That's one reason for some of the confusion and conflicting experiences on these boards.
I was able to get mine on no problem on the Destiny last week
LOL I was just going to type the same thing! I am looking at mine too from our Dream cruise.

We did not openly carry them onto the ship, we wrapped them in towels and placed them in our beach bags. Not to hide them but to protect them from damage when they went through the scanner.
