They do screen for powders and loose tobacco. There was a thread about a couple not allowed to board because their loose tobacco was deemed suspicious.

If you take powdered supplements, keep them in their original packaging.

I went on my first cruise since doing keto in February. At that point I had been keto for 2 months. Honestly staying keto food wise was totally easy. That said while I don't drink when doing serious keto at home, I do and did drink on cruises and my favorite is also wine. For me I was fine with eating keto and drinking my wine every night of the 12 night cruise. I did gain a few pounds. I forget now how much but less than 5. It came off easily after the cruise. We're cruising again in 3 weeks and I plan to do the same thing again. The key is that when you get home you need to go right back to strict keto and cut out the alcohol again.

Now I'm curious what cruise line that was. I've taken numerous supplements i.e, protein powder and drink mix powder in plastic baggies and never got stopped. So perhaps they randomly check for drugs but I doubt it considering how many bags they have to check to get everyone on board.

My point is that It wouldn't stop me from bringing what I want on board simply because there is very remote chance they might find it. Let them. As long as it isn't illegal they can't do anything about it.

Oh Lordy Audrilee! So sorry to hear about the Noro. One of the dangers of cruising. Yech!
